An all-new guide to the most popular long-distance bike tour in the United States The Pacific Coast route is the most popular bike touring route in the U.S., according to Mountaineers Books' non-profit partner, the Adventure Cycling Association. And for 33 years, our very own Bicycling the Pacific Coast was the most popular guidebook to this venerable route, until now! Cycling the Pacific Coast continues the trusted legacy with an all-new, extensively resarched, completely re-ridden, and comprehensive guidebook. It features the most up-to-date info on this amazing route. Author Bill Thorness, who has lived and cycled in the Pacific Northwest since the mid-1980s, shares his favorite sights and stops along this amazing coastal journey. Cycling the Pacific Coast is organized in five sections: Washington, Oregon, Northern California, Central California, and Southern California, and is useful to riders who plan to do the trip as one epic ride or break it up to pedal sections at a time.
