Featuring majestic scenery and dramatic panoramas, these carefully selected tours represent the most beautiful places to pedal throughout North America for both seasoned and novice cyclists featuring the groundbreaking user-sourced mapping technology of the Strava app.
The most complete cycling guide ever published for North America, this book presents 350 carefully curated cycling itineraries in the US, Canada, and Mexico featuring maps, technical details, tourist information, not-to-be-missed scenic highlights, and cycling hacks and tips.
Based upon information drawn from users of the Strava app, the most knowledgeable and expert cycling community in the world, these routes are the “best” balancing cycling level, scenic beauty, points of interest, iconic sites to visit—even must-visit bike shops. Those selected by three-time American Tour de France winner Greg LeMond focus on quieter roads—including dirt and gravel roads—that get cyclists off the beaten track.
Organized into eight regional sections covering the entire continent, the book includes some “off the mainland” routes in Hawaii and the Caribbean for good measure. For those with time and a spirit of adventure, routes can be connected for a continuous, coast-to-coast trip.
