9780812218688: Intimate Bicycle Tours of Philadelphia: Ten Excursions to the City's Art, Parks, and Neighborhoods

In a series of ten short, easy routes, Intimate Bicycle Tours of Philadelphia takes readers through vibrant Philadelphia neighborhoods, revealing a treasure trove of cultural riches normally missed when traveling by car. On tiny streets, elegant boulevards, and bicycle paths, readers are guided past historic sites, public parks and squares, exceptional architecture, and one of the world's best collections of public art, all accompanied by Patricia Vance's engaging, lively narrative.

As any avid cyclist knows, the bicycle is an ideal vehicle for sightseeing. It is possible to travel farther than on foot, yet the pace is slow enough to afford opportunities to take in all the details—and parking is as close as a bike rack or signpost. This is the only Philadelphia guidebook written specifically for cyclists and, unlike most guidebooks, it includes ready-made tours. Intimate Bicycle Tours of Philadelphia removes all the guesswork and is easy to follow, fun, and informative.

The tours take cyclists from Center City's world-renowned museums and cultural institutions, such as the Philadelphia Museum of Art and Independence Hall, to the neighborhoods of West Philadelphia, through Fairmount Park, and on to the idyllic, tree-lined streets of Chestnut Hill and Mt. Airy. Every tour includes directions to the start, a map of the route, and information about visiting each site. Such practical information as where to find restaurants and bicycle shops is also included.
