Description - 25 Mountain Bike Tours in the Adirondacks by Peter Kick
The largest, most beloved wilderness in the East is now open to mountain bikers, and Peter Kick's new guidebook tells you where and how to enjoy it. "The Park" is how Northeasterners refer to Adirondack State Park, a 6-million-acre wilderness of hemlock stands, beaver ponds, mile-high peaks, solitude, adventure--and world-class mountain biking. Inside the Park's Blue Line you'll find mile upon mile of hard-packed dirt roads, not to mention a well-developed network of bike trails ranging from the gentle to the exhilarating. Now Peter Kick, author of two previous mountain biking guidebooks, has selected 25 of the Park's best trails, including tours for every rider at every level of skill. Kick has scrupulously sought out only legal mountain biking trails; most importantly, he places special emphasis on riding each trail responsibly, without damaging the Park's unique and fragile ecology. In addition to providing directions to the trail, each write-up includes up-to-date maps and regulations, surface conditions, trail highlights, nearby bike repair shops, and detailed, mile-by-mile directions.
