Lonely Planet: The world's leading travel guide publisher Discover 200 of the best places to ride a bike in this beautifully illustrated hardback. From family-friendly, sightseeing urban rides to epic adventures off the beaten track. Destinations range from France and Italy, for the world's great bike races, to the wilds of Mongolia and Patagonia. These journeys will inspire - whether you are an experienced cyclist or just getting started. The book is organised by continent. In the Americas we join a family bikepacking trip in Ecuador; we pedal the Natchez Trace Parkway and stop at legendary music spots; we ride the Pacific Coast Highway in Oregon and California; go mountain biking in Moab and Canada; and explore the cities of Buenos Aires and New York by bicycle. European rides include easy-going trips around Lake Constance, along the Danube and the Loire, and coast-to-coast routes; routes in Tuscany, Spain and Corsica; and professional journeys up Mt Ventoux and around the Tour of Flanders. In Asia, we venture through Vietnam's valleys; complete the Mae Hong Son circuit in northern Thailand; cross the Indian Himalayas; and pedal through Bhutan. And in Australia and New Zealand we take in Tasmania and Queensland by mountain bike; cycle into Victoria's high country and around Adelaide on road bikes; and try some of New Zealand's celebrated cycle trails. Each ride is illustrated with stunning photography and a map. A toolkit of practical details - where to start and finish, how to get there, where to stay and more - helps riders plan their own trips. There are also suggestions for three more similar rides around the world for each story. Each piece shows how cycling is a fantastic way to get to know a place, a people and their culture.

Books Description:

Freiheit und Wildnis, schneebedeckte Berggipfel und unendliche Weite, eine raue Küste, alpine Bergseen und wilde Flüsse - der Nordwesten der USA verkörpert immer noch eine ursprüngliche Natur, wie sie einst die Ureinwohner und Pioniere erlebt haben. Mitten in dieser Kulisse erhebt sich die Gebirgskette der Rocky Mountains - spektakulär in ihrer landschaftlichen Vielfalt kreiert sie die zauberhaftesten Landstriche, die Nordamerika zu bieten hat. Durch eines der abwechslungsreichsten Gebiete der USA führt die Reiseroute mit Startpunkt Seattle durch sechs National Parks: Vom Wanderparadies Mount Rainier National Park, dominiert vom majestätischen, weißen Vulkangipfel, geht es entlang der wilden Pazifikküste und durch den Regenwald des Olympic National Parks über das Kaskadengebirge in den North Cascades National Park. Tief in den Rockys beeindruckt die alpine Szenerie des Glacier National Parks, in dem es Wildnis und Wildtiere zu entdecken gilt. Es folgen der gigantische Yellowstone National Park mit geothermischen Mysterien, der zauberhafte Grand Teton National Park und als Kontrastprogramm das geschichtsträchtige Salt Lake City mit eindrucksvollen Bauwerken und dem berühmten Großen Salzsee. Folgen Sie den Spuren der Native Americans, der Cowboys und frühen Siedler und erleben Sie auf 5.500 Kilometern und innerhalb der sechs nordwestlichsten Bundesstaaten der USA die zahlreichen Wunder der Natur auf einer einzigartigen Reiseroute.

Books Description:

From droving to driving, heilan coos to long horns, "Highland Cowboys" explores the links between the two cattle cultures of Scotland and America through music, song, dance, and folklore. The vast number of Scots who emigrated to North America, whether through forcible eviction during the Highland Clearances or voluntarily in the hope of a better life, has been well documented. With them they took their culture, their language, their music and their skills. Cattle droving in Scotland was an established profession from the 16th century, and many such migrants took cowboy jobs in the American West. The medium of music paints a vivid picture of their social and personal lives, and describes a mutual exchange as music crossed and re-crossed the Atlantic creating strong links between the old culture and the new. This unique exploration of the cowboy culture sheds new light on the everyday life of the cattle communities.
