9780813018515: Florida's Paved Bike Trails

"A comprehensive guide to the Sunshine State’s multi-use trails."-- Dwight Kingsbury, Florida Bicycle Association

"Florida has long needed a touring guide to our wonderful bicycle paths and multi-use trails. These colorful, accurate, in-depth descriptions provide those touring the trails with a historical, naturalistic perspective to add to their cycling experience."-- Linda Crider, president, Bike Florida

Florida’s Paved Bike Trails offers the most comprehensive guide available to more than 40 paved bicycle trails stretching from Pensacola Beach to the Florida Keys, with information on projects in progress or in the planning stages.
Location maps and a geographical and historical description of each trail are included, as well as access listings of trailside facilities and parking and information on basic bicycle safety and bicycle shops. And, unlike other bicycling books, this guide also provides information about parks, beaches, lakes, recreational areas, wildlife refuges, historic sites, and museums along the trails or in close proximity to them.

Offering safe and controlled routes to ride, this book will serve beginning bicyclists, families with children, and experienced road cyclists looking for trails on which they can maintain a steady pace unencumbered by traffic and intersections. It will also be useful for rollerbladers, skateboarders, joggers, and walkers, and it includes information about equestrian trails that exist alongside bike trails.

As the only single source of information on all the bike trails in Florida and an eco-tour guide to these routes, Florida’s Paved Bike Trails is a must for everyone who enjoys the parallel pleasures of cycling and sightseeing.

Jeff Kunerth has been a reporter with the Orlando Sentinel for more than 20 years. He is co-author of Georgia Adventures: One-Day and Weekend Getaways. He and his wife, Gretchen, have together bicycled thousandss of miles in Florida and Georgia since the early 1980s.

Book Description:

Updated edition of the best-selling guide to bicycling in Florida   "Whether on bike, foot, in-line skate, or even horse, this trail book can help you find the paths and know what to expect when you get there, and what you might find along the way." --Tallahassee Democrat   "Good for those who are far from home and appreciate having few surprises on a grueling bike ride into the backcountry, even on a paved pathway." --Outdoor Adventure Magazine   "A must for people who enjoy the parallel pleasures of cycling and sightseeing." --Travel Writer Marketletter   "Kunerth took about a year to ride the trails in the book. Sometimes, it was a matter of day trips from Orlando. Other times, he and his wife took long weekends to the Panhandle or South Florida to ride four or five trails." --Jacksonville Times-Union   "Jammed with the info cyclists venturing into the unknown crave. There are simple maps that point out where to park, restrooms, water, crossroads, and 'watch out' places where extra caution is required along the routes." --Gainesville Sun   "Readers are advised where to find trendy shopping on Miami's M-Path; where to find a bike rack at the Flagler mansion in Palm Beach (just outside the front gate), and which trail goes by the second largest nudist colony in Florida." --Florida Bicycle Messenger   This thoroughly revised volume includes updated information on the more than forty trails featured in the first edition (and the deletion of one trail destroyed during the hurricane season of 2004/05). It also features detailed listings and descriptions of nineteen additional bike paths from across the state, built or completed in the past seven years.
