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 Sydney 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 dive in for a swim.

This new edition is fully updated and features brand new, far more detailed maps than the previous edition. It includes: five ride themes (the city, our history, coastal landscapes, parks and rivers, and the countryside); 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 over 100 inspirational full-colour photographs.

Sydney-based cycling author and back-street cycle routes guru Bruce Ashley has written this revised edition. His excitement at experiencing new locations and cultural delights is reflected in a guide that both stimulates and informs, and he hopes it will get readers out of the armchair and onto the saddle!
