Over highways and byways and converted railway roadbeds, Biking to Blissville gives maps and precise directions for about forty bicycle rides through the most scenic areas of Maritime Canada. Most of the trips are loops. Each leads from a country inn, motel, or campground through uncrowded countryside, and author Kent Thompson has tested them all for fun, safety, and degree of difficulty. Thompson also suggests accomodations that fit cyclists tastes and purses, and the vagaries of the weather, from rustic campgrounds to opulent country inns, from old-time sporting camps to cozy bed-and-breakfasts.
The core of John Forester's concept of Effective Cycling is that bicyclists fare best when they act, and are treated in return, as drivers of vehicles, with the same rights and responsibilities that motorists have. In this new edition of his classic introductory work, Forester reasserts this idea in terms of practice and education as well as theory while also addressing-among much else-the two major forces that have shaped bicycling since the early 1980s: the proliferation of high-quality equipment and the seriously insufficient progress on the social, political, and psychological fronts. The book is filled with details, strategies, and tips that will be useful both to occasional cyclists and to those who enjoy cycling as a way of life-all drawn from the author's many years of experience as a cyclist, a Cycling Transportation Engineer, and the founder of the Effective Cycling Program.

Bradley Wiggins is a very British sporting hero: unassuming, private, given to a sardonic sense of humour and a strong appreciation for those that have supported him throughout - his family and fans. He is also a fiercely determined competitor, a supremely passionate athlete and an eloquent ambassador for his beloved sport. Not to mention a phenomenal cyclist.Wiggo first shot to attention as a 20-year-old, taking a bronze medal in the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. Six Olympic medals later, and after one of cycling's most tumultuous periods as it battled the dope cheats - Wiggins himself suffered in this war as his team withdrew from the 2007 Tour de France after one of his teammates was caught - Bradley Wiggins and Team Sky assembled in Liege, Belgium for the start of the 2012 Tour.Those 12 years and the weeks that followed - from the Tour de France to the incredible gold medal at the London 2012 Olympics - are retold in this Guardian Short, a unique collection of world-class sports writing featuring the likes of William Fotheringham, Donald McRae - and Bradley Wiggins himself.
