A Great Bicycling Guide...,
This review is from: Where to Bike Chicago: Best Biking in City and Suburbs (Where to Bike (BA Press)) (Spiral-bound)
Wow! I am impressed. What a great biking guide for those of us who live in or near Chicago and its suburbs. I saw this book offered recently as a premium by one of the local public tv stations...but the available copies were quickly snatched up. However, I had a chance to spend some time with it at a friend's house...and couldn't put it down. Glad to see it now available on Amazon. It comes off as a labor of love by a great writer and a dedicated bicyclist.
This book is really well organized, detailed, reasonably compact (not much more than a pound...easy to throw in a backpack or bike bag)...and absolutely full of maps, photos, trail ratings, trail descriptions, history, log rides, etc. I'm learning about 72 bike trails (including 27 good ones for kids)...most of which I never knew existed...and thinking hard about giving this book as a gift to friends and family. Five stars!
