Book Description

ROAD BIKING™ GEORGIA: A Guide to the Greatest Bicycle Rides in Georgia

John Trussel

The first book of its kind, for cyclists of all skill levels

There is no other guide to bicycling the expanse of the Peach State, home turf to award-winning journalist and cyclist John Trussel. Whether riders want to keep in shape or explore what lies over the next hill, the 40 routes and maps provided here give detailed directions and mileage for all travelers. Carefully researched, the rides offer a variety of terrain, conditions, and historical significance. The book is divided into three sections – North and the Mountains, Piedmont, and South Georgia/Coastline – and each route uses less-traveled secondary roads as much as possible and begins and ends in the same location. Some routes are well known, such as “Six Gaps” near Dahlonega, and some cruise through delightful beach areas, remote quail plantations, and even downtown Savannah. A unique, comprehensive guide on one of the most beautiful states for touring by bicycle.

John Trussell is a law enforcement officer, journalist, and member of the Central Georgia Cyclists Club. He lives in Warner Robins, Georgia, in Houston County, and has ridden to every corner of the state.
