The 50 Greatest Bike Rides of the World
From freewheeling through tufted French vineyards and scaling the rocky, cloud-topped tracks in the Himalayas to rattling past white-washed sugar-cube houses in narrow Spanish valleys, surviving the peaks of the Yorkshire Dales to tackling truly hair-rising descents in rural Cuba, the sheer variety of routes in The 50 Greatest Cycle Rides will have you reaching for your bicycle clips, helmet and gloves. Be it for excitement, necessity, adventure or relaxation, this book has something for every cycling enthusiast. Enjoy tales of scenic single tracks, switchback climbs and routes newly discovered. It's time to get those panniers packed and sprockets checked and climb into the saddle.
