Cycling Sojourner will guide your bike adventures in Washington + Release party Thursday

CyclingSojournerWA_BookCover_July2013Cycling Sojourner is like a real life Choose Your Own Adventure book for bike touring. It lays a solid foundation to plan your pedal-powered vacation ranging from bare bones camping in the Cascades to sipping wine in Walla Walla.

Following 2012’s Oregon guide, Ellee Thalheimer and friends have turned their gaze to the Evergreen State. Cycling Sojourner: A Guide to the Best Multi-Day Tours in Washington is scheduled for release Thursday, and book sponsor Washington Bikes is hosting a release party from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. during the Pioneer Square First Thursday Art Walk.

Beyond the regional diversity of Washington, the book covers diverse lodging and food options so you can cater your trip perfectly to your needs. Options include trips with shorter mileage and hotels, which are welcoming to people who have never bike toured before.

For those of you that seek it Thalheimer takes you off the beaten path. With detailed maps and cue sheets, riders have an accurate sense of what lays ahead. The book is thoughtful, paying attention to the special needs of bike touring, like highlighting good hiker/biker campsites, policies for taking a bike on a train and where to restock your water supply.

There is no shortage of fun places to stop and check out along the way on all of the trips. The only hard part about this book is choosing which adventure you want to go on first.
