Nowhere in the world can you bear rested for having too much fun while riding a bicycle! Unless, of course, you read ‘BICYCLING AROUND THE WORLD’!

This photo includes all the following routes except the South Ridge. The major routes on the Eiger are: West Flank & West Ridge. This book includes many chapters and facts about all aspects of the mountain.

A bicycle has a tiny manufacturing footprint when compared to a car. All manufactured goods have environmental impact, but bicycles can be produced for a fraction of the materials, energy and shipping costs of a car. 3. Bicycles produce no meaningful pollution when in operation. Bikes don't have tailpipes belching poisonous fumes into the atmosphere. They also eliminate the oil, fuel and hydraulic fluids dripped by automobiles onto the road surface - which means less toxic runoff into local waterways. 4. Bikes save taxpayers money by reducing road wear.

The fourth in Abbeville’s series of unusual, illustrated vacation guides, Bicycling Along the World’s Most Exceptional Routes follows the success of Cooking School Holidays in the World’s Most Exceptional Places, Spas: Exceptional Destinations Around the World, and Walking the World’s Most Exceptional Trails. In this new guide, excursions range from an easy ride through the Loire Valley in France, with stops along the way to taste local wines, to a more challenging trail through Tibet into Nepal. Among the other destinations is a route into northwest Ireland, which winds through an unspoiled landscape of lakes and rivers, and a trip beginning in Tallinn, Estonia—where you'll have time to explore the city’s historic streets and squares before heading out into the countryside—and ending in St. Petersburg, Russia. Included in this book is a holiday to suit everyone’s interest and ability. The trips last between seven and fourteen days and are easy to organize yourself. Alternatively, the author provides information about specialist travel companies who will make all the reservations for you. You can opt to travel with a group or ride independently at your own pace, following a set of detailed notes and maps. Ground operators are on hand along the way to service your bike and make any repairs needed. Whether you prefer the countryside with long, winding downhill runs or being dropped off on a mountaintop to admire the view before riding down through the terrain, this book will help you discover an extraordinary outdoors vacation.

Some very beautiful rides are highlighted here, including places most people would not think of as cycling destinations, such as Kazakhstan. Although this appears to be a book, it is fact a compilation of brochures from a small group of touring companies. The "author," who has very extensive touring experience, begins each chapter with a brief introduction but the remainder of each section is a day-by-day itinerary taken straight from the brochure of the company offering the trip, including which particular hotel they are using and where road transfers are made. If you do an Internet search, you should be able to find each company easily and can either look at the trips they offer online or order a brochure for free. Of course, there are many, many beautiful trips that have been overlooked. The only one shown for Italy is the flat (as in drained-swamp area) of Tuscany. Almost nothing for France, nothing at all for Switzerland and the flat Danube canal route for all of Austria and Germany! Honestly, how can you offer "the World's Most Exceptional Routes" for cycling without the Alps or the Dolomites?

A lot of the photographs are very nice, but there are no useful maps or directions included, and precious little about the history of the places you are riding through, so that you can work out your dream trip on your own. From the appearance of the book, I would have liked to rate it higher but I think the whole premise is somewhat misleading. Part of the joy of bike touring is the planning of your trip and making your own discoveries but the regimented daily program of organized travel as set out here will not appeal to many who love finding their own way and making their own adventures. Rob Penn might be credited as the author, but he put close to zero effort into this and at most is an editor.

I bought this book, since I'm planning to do a world tour bike.
Well this book teaches you how to get by helicopter to a mountain and down hill by bike?????? What is this ? I believe this book is make for people interested in easy bike, poor social interactivity, and no respect of foreign culture.
If you buy this book, you are paying for a touring "brochure", and guess who organises the tours? You got it. Maps on the book are absent! nothing!

This kind of tourism will leave nothing to your kids.

This is infamous.

(I will ask for a refund). Outrageous against cycling touring, outrageous.

This is a very pretty book and would entice anyone to want to try many of the depicted rides. However, it seemed as though it were sponsored by tour operators, who we all know charge premium prices. What would have been terrific would be more detailed information and itineraries for self-supported tours, so more of us could actually try out these tours This book becomes just a starting point for those who want to venture out on our own for whatever reason.

An amazing variety of possible bike journeys. Most parts of the world are covered. Lovely pictures, as well. My one objection is that writer's style is not personal enough, it's not clear whether Rob Penn actually biked any of these journeys.

This is not the book to give you detailed descriptions of the bike rides it covers. Instead, it describes a variety of cycling holidays in diverse locations that will inspires you to consider riding in locations you may never have considered. Whether you are looking for an easy cruise or a more challenging ride in a remote location, there will be something in this book to whet your appetite. If you are thinking of a cycling holiday, this book may well make up your mind.
