Best Bike Rides Connecticut describes 40 of the greatest recreational rides in the Connectiut. Road rides, rail rides, bike paths, and single-track mountain bike rides all get included. Most rides are in the 5- to 35-mile range, allowing for great afternoon outings and family adventures (though there are plenty of challenging rides in the mix as well). Best Bike Rides Connecticut includes a map of each ride, a log of significant mile points, a text description of the ride, a start-finish point with nearby motor vehicle parking, the GPS coordinates of the start-finish point, and color photos of one of the ride's features. Also included is information on local restaurants, lodging, maps, bicycle shops, other facilities for cyclists, and community resources.
