Seen on The New York Times ‘Bookshelf’


from Sam Roberts:

His “Where to Bike New York City” (BA Press, $29.95), the latest in a series of site-specific guidebooks, includes 58 recommended rides accompanied by maps, terrain guides and practical advice, along with safety tips for navigating city traffic.

“Most of my city rides were rides to places, not rides where the point was to take a loop within a borough,” Mr. Partland writes. “It’s a big world, but many don’t stop to check out their own backyard, myself included.” In researching this book, he has done just that, and offers the benefit of his experience.
