-- enCYCLEpress is pleased to announce the publication of the new completely updated enCYCLEpedia Southern California: The Best Easy Scenic Bike Rides 2nd Edition
by Richard Fox.
This unique guidebook takes the reader on a jubilant journey of discovery to the most scenic places in Southern California accessible via easy bike rides, from the beaches to the mountains to the deserts. Fox provides plenty of insider tips in this densely packed volume with over 200 ride options from San Luis Obispo to San Diego Counties, Los Angeles to Palm Springs, and everywhere in between. Anyone comfortable riding a bike can handle these easy bike rides, mostly on paved and dirt trails away from vehicle traffic. The excursions are typically in the 10 to 20 mile range with minimal hills, making them perfect for casual cyclists, social groups, most families, tourists, or even serious cyclists, with options presented to shorten or lengthen the distances as appropriate.
If your tolerance for boredom is low – Fox keeps you entertained with all the sights and sounds of the trail that you might not be aware of. He draws attention to present day attractions, historic places, shopping districts, bird and whale watching spots, surfing beaches, dining options, and almost everything else that the rider might encounter on or close to the route. The best campgrounds/
RV parks that access fabulous rides are featured ("Camp 'n Rides") and the best routes accessible by the region's extensive rail system are also called out.
Full color maps and photos accompany the impeccably researched text along with whimsical additions such as songs and foods paired with each ride. There isn't another cycling guide on the market that is written so entertainingly with so much information. On rainy days it can be your "armchair" cycling guide.
Book owners can access password-protected features on its companion website such as bonus articles, post-publication updates, expanded versions of some ride descriptions, and key take-along maps to print or view on a mobile device.
The book is available on Amazon.com, from select shops in Southern California, or personally dedicated from the author via PayPal at enCYCLEpedia.net. Retailers may order from contacts found on enCYCLEpedia.net.
