Dille has done a wonderful job with this book. It is a collection of essays about amazing bike rides all over the world. Each stands alone as a great work of nonfiction. Although the writing is excellent, I think a few more photos would bring it to life for me. I found this to be an easy, enjoyable book to read. It would appeal to any cyclist and to some travelers looking for new adventures. Most of the rides described, however, are for serious, very skilled riders. I am a recreational rider and ...more

Very little information provided. No maps and few photos. Some destinations only warranted a page with barely a paragraph of description. Very disappointing!

I came with scepticism as the last version of this kind of book could have been written by google, with zilch riding experience

I won a copy of this book from Goodreads First Reads program in exchange for an honest opinion.

This book details "75 quintessential cycling experiences". I entered the giveaway for this book so I could give it to my husband, an avid cyclist, but the pictures are so beautiful, I had to read it myself!! I found the book very readable, and especially enjoyed the descriptions of the rides through other countries. It's impossible to read this book and NOT say "oh, man, that sounds awesome!!" As for
