Inspirational, not a guide book.
on December 13, 2012
There are a lot of cyclists out there who are perfectly content with doing all of their biking in their backyard. Santella's book is just a starting point for people considering a trip further afield. In browsing the book, readers will get some grasp on the landscape of possibilities and a few names and addresses to get started.
The preceding reviewer complained that the book was just marketing fluff from bicycle tour operators and guides, ( full disclosure: I'm one of the "experts" interviewed in the book). Although it's true that all of the experts are "in the business", I can't think of a better way of curating the selection of destinations and offering it up to the public.
If you're a veteran adventure cyclist, this book isn't for you. However, if you'd like to encourage someone (or yourself) to consider a cycling vacation at some point, this is a great place to start.
