Lite Cycle Touring in Europe
Recently I was in the process of exploring cycle touring venues in Europe when I came across and downloaded this eBook. I was struck first by the gorgeous photos depicting the author and friends cycling in a variety of countries and types of terrains. When I dug in more deeply I found a wealth of useful information such as how to secure clean, but modest accomodations, how to select and pack gear without overloading, how to use handheld and tablet devices to access maps and bicycle routes while cycling, and how to perform essential maintenance. This is not simply an electronic rendering of a printed book, but an interactive resource where maps can be expanded and browsed, where movies can be viewed instantly, and useful websites can be accessed directly. Highly Recommended.
