Product Description:

Over 25 Interesting, Historic, and Cultural Rides. Second Edition 2016, including expanded section on Northern Italy.

Cycling Along Europe's Rivers is a "How To" book on taking self-guided bike trips to Europe that are affordable and easy to organize.

The book is based on the author's extensive experience, including over 20 years of annual cycle trips to Europe.

Rhine River, Danube River, Elbe River, Loire River, Po River, Neckar River, Mosel River, Main River, and more.

• How to plan and prepare.

• How to get what you need to the start of a ride and home again --bikes, panniers, and you.

• What to bring and what not -- how to keep your load small.

• How to handle getting around and other logistics.

• Bike, Lodging and Eating advice.

• Safety, Security, and Communication advice.

• Route recommendations and key features.

In short, everything you need to know to have a first-class, comfortable, flexible, and interesting riding trip to Europe without spending a fortune or going with an organized package. We budget about $120 per day per person (less if sharing rooms) plus airfare for hotels, meals, and everything else for rides that are typically 8-14 days in length.

Rivers make the perfect touring -- flat, easy to navigate, interesting towns, historical sites, and relatively short distances between stops and sites. These trips are for everyone -- from weekend warriors to casual riders, from the young to the old. I have undertaken these rides with riders in their 80s, and the last four years with my 11 year old son on a tandem.

Our routes guide riders through Germany, the Netherlands, Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, France, Italy, Switzerland, and, Slovakia, and utilize the detailed maps found in the terrific German Bikeline map guides.

"Cycling Along Europe's Rivers" is a companion book to the European Bikeline Map Guides. It will tell you how and where to go, which Bikeline map guide to use for route details, and how to use these maps. That's all you need! Please Note: While the book does provide over 25 routes, suggested overnight stops, and associated mileage, it does not provide turn-by-turn details, and detailed maps, because this is not necessary for these trips given GPS, generally well-marked trails, the very detailed Bikeline companion guides, and the rivers themselves providing the ultimate route guide!

Cities and regions in Europe you can visit include, among many other: the Danube Gorge, Amsterdam, Leiden, the Hague, Rotterdam, Utrecht, Arnhem, Dusseldorf, Cologne, Bonn, Koblenz, Cochem, Frankfurt, Heidelberg, Strasbourg, Colmar, Basel, the Rhine Falls, Lake Bodensee, Konstanz, Regensburg, Passau, Linz, Melk, Vienna, Bratislava, Gyor, Tata, Budapest, Cesky Krumlov, Prague, Dresden, Meissen, Wittenberg, Potsdam, Berlin, Hamburg, Bremerhaven, Bremen, Hameln, Hann. Munden, Orleans, Chambord, Blois, Amboise, Chenonceaux, Chinon, Saumur, Angers, St. Nazaire, Milan, Cremona, Parma, Mantua, Merano, Bolzano, Lake Garda, Verona, Padua, Chioggia, and Venice. Even a brief mention of the C&O Canal and Erie Canal rides as warm-ups.

Cycling Along Europe's Rivers is practical and well-organized. We have loved these trips and think you will, too!

The standard print version is in black and white, and on Kindle in full color maps (but not updated with Northern Italy route).

Please feel free to contact the author at: mlyon@cycletouringbooks.com. We appreciate all your kind reviews and feedback!"

Note on Second Edition: Original book published in 2012, and has been updated annually, including Rhine Gorge, Mosel River, Lake Bodensee, Inn River, and Passau to Vienna along the Danube River. In 2016 extensive additions on Northern Italy routes were added. Please note that the Kindle version does not contain updated Italian section, but purchasers can contact author for the update.

Product Description:

Ultimate E'tapes is the essential guide to cycling the very best routes in Europe. From the epic ascent of the Stelvio to the windswept coastline of the Netherlands’ North Sea, by way of the cobbles of Flanders and Italy’s Strade Bianche, Peter Cossins has created a guide to the stages that have defined modern cycling. Taken together, they create a tour of Europe that offers as broad a variety of terrain as any of the Grand Tours would provide, enabling riders inspired by the beauty, thrills and demands of these races to challenge themselves on exactly the same parcours.

Ultimate E'tapes is a book for cyclists of all abilities - from experienced club racers to enthusiastic amateurs who might just want to take on one great cycle. Each stage includes a detailed route description, (with map and profile) and suggestions on other riding within each region, including details of the most significant sportives in the area. Peter Cossins’ beautifully written text explains why each stage merits inclusion with superb descriptions of the majestic scenery, the heroic deeds of cycling's legendary riders or the sheer endeavour and exhilaration of completing a stage.

Product Description:
From the author of the cult favorite Pro Cycling on $10 a Day and Ask a Pro, the story of one man’s quest to realize his childhood dream, and what happened when he actually did it.
 
Like countless other kids, Phil Gaimon grew up dreaming of being a professional athlete. But unlike countless other kids, he actually pulled it off. After years of amateur races, hard training, living out of a suitcase, and never taking “no” for an answer, he finally achieved his goal and signed a contract to race professionally on one of the best teams in the world.

Now, Gaimon pulls back the curtain on the WorldTour, cycling’s highest level. He takes readers along for his seasons in Europe, covering everything from rabid, water-bottle-stealing Belgian fans, to contract renewals, to riding in poisonous smog, to making friends in a sport plagued by doping. Draft Animals reveals a story as much about bike racing as it is about the never-ending ladder of achieving goals, failure, and finding happiness if you land somewhere in-between.

Product Description:
Bicycle touring 2,500 miles alone across New Europe is not for the faint of heart, but Barry D. Wood spends several vacations doing just that on his trusty Cannondale hybrid. During an arduous journey—from the shores of the Baltic Sea, across the Polish plain, through Central Europe to the Danube, and over the Carpathian and Balkan mountains to the Adriatic Sea—Barry is repeatedly helped by friendly people who offer shelter and share stories of life under communism and the challenging transition that followed. This is his story of adventure, people, disparate cultures, challenging terrain and historical context. Barry D. Wood is an economics journalist in Washington, DC. For three years in the 1990s, as the Voice of America correspondent in Prague, he wrote extensively about the transition from communism to democracy and market economies in Central and Eastern Europe.
