Backroad Bicycling in New Hampshire: 32 Scenic Rides Along Country Lanes in the Granite State by Andi Marie Cantele
A guide to bicycling New Hampshire's most scenic backroads and byways, for road, mountain, and hybrid bikes. New Hampshire is blessed with diverse terrain that will appeal to all levels of cyclists. Challenging routes cut through the rugged Presidential Range while others explore the gentle Lakes Region area. Rural farms and historic villages line the roads of the Monadnock region and the Connecticut River. Beautiful seacoast rides can be found in the Portsmouth area. Andi Marie Cantele offers the reader the best of these rides from around the state, complete with mile-by-mile directions and clear, easy-to-follow maps. While other biking books have focused on off-road biking in the White Mountains or road touring in southern New Hampshire, no other book successfully puts it all together in a single cycling guide to the Granite State.
