Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book is for you if: (a) you¦re new in town and want to discover the most popular rides in the area; (b) you¦re a tourist who wants to see a different side of America¦s most visited city, a side you can view only from the seat of a bicycle; or (c) you¦re a Bay Area resident who wants to learn some extremely cool, tucked-away little bicycle routes that might otherwise take you years of exploring to discover. You will not need a car to do any of the 24 rides in this book. All routes were researched and recorded using 100 percent human power. (Well, that and public transportation!) Most rides start right in San Francisco, while others can be accessed through connections with other rides that start in town or via public transportation. About half the routes are inside the city limits. The other half go through nearby open space and rural areas. San Francisco is truly blessed by large areas of open space where a cyclist can ride with the illusion of being miles and miles from civilization. Included are precise written directions, excellent route maps, safety tips, availability of food and facilities and vivid descriptions of points of interest. Each ride is given a level of difficulty, which includes mileage.

Synopsis:

For the avid cyclist or for the family planning a weekend activity, these carefully slected, well-researched routes are appropriate for everyone.

Synopsis:

Park your car, put on your helmet, fill your water bottle, and discover the best way to see the sights in San Francisco--on two wheels. Whether you're a dedicated cyclist or just want to have some fun with the kids on the weekend, a bike and a couple of hours are all you need to enjoy the carefully selected routes in this well-researched guide.

Synopsis:

Globe Pequot's Short Bike Rides "TM" series offers delightful short and moderate tours for all levels of cyclists. Each ride profile includes precise directions, excellent road maps, and vivid descriptions of the points of interest along the way. Also featured is "comfort" information — the location of restaurants, bathroom facilities, and attractions located along the route.
