25 Bicycle Tours in Maryland: From the Allegheny Mountains to the Chesapeake Bay

With a varied terrain that includes the forested slopes of the Allegheny Mountains, hilly farmland along the Pennsylvania border, pine-filled woodlands along the upper Chesapeake Bay, and the flat expanses of the Eastern Shore, Maryland is perfect for cycling adventures. For this completely revised and updated second edition, Anne Oman has traveled throughout the state to assemble 25 trips, including four new tours, ranging from a day's outing to a weekend inn-to-inn tour. Visit the wild ponies of Assateague Island; spin through Antietam National Battlefield and other historic sites; explore the streets of Baltimore and Annapolis; or raise your pulse on a hard ride around Sugarloaf Mountain. The rides range in length from 5 to 95 miles. Each tour description includes a detailed map, as well as information on mileage, terrain, where to eat and repair a bike, and natural and historic highlights you'll see along the way. 4 new tours in this edition. 20 black and white photographs 26 maps
