Bicycle Vacation Guide: Minnesota and Wisconsin based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
I was disappointed that one reviewer described Bicycle Vacation Guide as 'repackaged tourist information.' As the author and publisher, I can only say that my bike and car took an awful beating for that repackaged information.All of the road loops in the book are ours. We checked with local riders and businesses, but in the end we chose the routes ourselves. All of the maps, including the maps to the trailheads and through the trail towns are original. We decided to create them when we found ourselves frustrated by the lack of information guiding trail users to the trailheads. We also showed routes from the trail to destinations within the trail towns, such as beaches and parks. I've never found that information in literature from state agencies. It's true that the tourist information is available through other sources, but it's not as easy to get as calling a single agency or looking at one website. I had one person working part time for several months accumulating the information and verifying its accuracy. (We had some significant phone bills during that time). Our goal with the tourist information was not to get original info, but to sort through too much information, select that which we felt our readers would most appreciate, then present it in an easy-to-use format. Between the original research and the convenience of having a compact guide with everything you need for a bicycle vacation, we feel that we are providing a lot of value for the price of the book.

There's less here than meets the eye. All I found is the same information you can get for free from state tourism agencies. Don't waste your money.
