The ride guide that gives the reader the inspiration and confidence to get out on the quiet streets, roads and bike paths and see what Canberra and its hinterland has to offer. Their senses will reel with the sounds and smells of the bustling city and the ever-changing bush, and they'll find the opportunities and freedom to stop and chat, sample local produce, or even dive in for a swim.

It includes: five themed chapters; all the information required to plan a trip, travel to the start using public transport, and confidently navigate the route; great ideas on places to visit, restaurants and cafes to enjoy, and a wealth of facts to broaden the mind; plus detailed maps and over 100 inspirational full- colour photographs.

Bruce Ashley, cycling author and back street cycle routes guru, exudes excitement at experiencing new locations and cultural delights and this is reflected in a guide that both stimulates and informs. Bruce hopes it will get readers out of the armchair and back in the saddle!
