Product Description:
Subways and yellow taxis may be the icons of New York transportation, but it is the bicycle that has the longest claim to New York’s streets: two hundred years and counting. Never has it taken to the streets without controversy: 1819 was the year of the city’s first bicycle and also its first bicycle ban. Debates around the bicycle’s place in city life have been so persistent not just because of its many uses―recreation, sport, transportation, business―but because of changing conceptions of who cyclists are.

In On Bicycles, Evan Friss traces the colorful and fraught history of cycling in New York City. He uncovers the bicycle’s place in the city over time, showing how it has served as a mirror of the city’s changing social, economic, infrastructural, and cultural politics since it first appeared. It has been central, as when horse-drawn carriages shared the road with bicycle lanes in the 1890s; peripheral, when Robert Moses’s car-centric vision made room for bicycles only as recreation; and aggressively marginalized, when Ed Koch’s battle against bike messengers culminated in the short-lived 1987 Midtown Bike Ban. On Bicycles illuminates how the city as we know it today―veined with over a thousand miles of bicycle lanes―reflects a fitful journey powered, and opposed, by New York City’s people and its politics.

Product Description:
An indispensable resource for dedicated cyclists planning to bike across the state or the casual rider looking to take the family out for a couple of hours. Great for walkers, boaters, and auto travelers, too.

The Erie Canalway Trail is a cycling destination for riders of all abilities. Following one of the world’s most famous manmade waterways, it spans New York State between Albany and Buffalo. Whether enjoying a leisurely ride from one village to another, or spending a week completing the entire 360 miles, the Erie Canalway Trail offers endless adventures exploring the charming towns, living history, scenic beauty and cultural attractions of New York State. The trail route follows both active and historic sections of the Erie Canal. For more than thirty years, state and local governments have been transforming the old towpath and abandoned rail corridor into a 360-mile multi-use pathway; by 2015, more than three-quarters of the off-road route was in place.

The guidebook is designed primarily for use by bicyclists, but it is also useful for those planning to enjoy the trail on foot, travelling the canal system by boat, or visiting the Canal corridor’s many sites by car. The revised edition includes new inset maps to guide trail users through complicated stretches. All new trail segments developed since 2012 have been added, along with on-road routing updates. The guide’s comprehensive listings of attractions, historic sites, visitor centers, and parks make it an indispensable resource for dedicated cyclists planning to bike across the state or the casual rider looking to take the family out for a couple of hours.

An indispensable resource for dedicated cyclists planning to bike the Hudson Valley or the casual rider looking to take the family out for a couple of hours, this guidebook will help you experience the Hudson Valley, one of the most beautiful, historic, and environmentally and culturally rich regions in New York, as only cyclists and walkers can. Detailing the parks, trails, attractions, villages, towns, and cities of this breathtaking river valley, including Albany, New York City, and fascinating sites in between, the guide has been designed primarily for use by bicyclists, but it will also be useful to those enjoying the area by other means.

The cycling routes laid out in this guidebook were developed from Parks & Trails New York’s years of experience organizing the Great Hudson Valley Pedal, its annual supported bike tour from Albany to Manhattan, as well as many hours bicycling and walking the valley’s roads and trails. Park & Trails New York’s goal is to set out safe and inviting routes on both sides of the Hudson River, as close to the river as possible.

  • 25 BICYCLE TOURS LAKE CHAMPLAI
Product Description:

A guide to the premier cycling destination in New England, a region of outstanding scenery, with lightly traveled, good quality roads, attractive and historic towns and villages, friendly residents, and a range of lodging and dining options.

This book offers rides over the entire Lake Champlain region, from the southern tip of the lake at the birthplace of the U.S. Navy in Whitehall, New York, to its northernmost bay in Quebec, west to Lake Placid and extending east to the charming college town of Middlebury. Charles Hansen, who has been riding and organizing bicycle tours in the area for two decades, has researched and ridden these routes to create a book that will serve all cyclistsfrom the hardcore roadie who wants the challenge of an 82-mile ride through the eastern Adirondacks, to the casual rider or family looking for a scenic and largely flat afternoon outing. Several multiple day-tours are described, including the Lake Placid Weekender that starts from Burlington and provides a highly scenic and satisfying two-day ride for touring cyclists. Route notes are provided for The Grand Tour, a nine-day circumnavigation of the entire lake with a rest day in Montreal, as well as shorter variations on this tour. From 25 Bicycle Tours in the Lake Champlain Region you'll learn much about the rich history of the region as well as find out about tourism organizations, lodging, museums, and attractions along the way. 30 black & white photos, 25 maps.
