Lonely Planet makes some of the best guidebooks in the world… and their cycling guides are no exception.
Recently, I was sent the Lonely Planet’s Cycling Italy guidebook and asked to share my thoughts on the book with you.
I’m happy to report, Cycling Italy lives up to its expectations. The book is jam-packed with just about everything you need to conduct an incredible cycling trip in Italy. Watch the video above to see exactly what I have to say about this incredible cycling resource and see some inside shots of the book.
What makes Cycling Italy so great is not only the fact that there are 38 awesome Italian bike rides in the book, or that the text covers more than 6,000 miles worth of rides, but the fact that the book also gives you a brief introduction to bicycle touring, provides you with turn-by-turn directions (via tiny cue-sheets that you can photocopy and carry with you as you ride), gives you detailed elevation charts, and even provides you with the GPS coordinates needed to complete your trip by bike.
My Rating: 10 out of 10
