If there is one flaw, the author doesn't seem to like city riding and doesn't offer any it his selection. But the book does offer fabulous road routes (I've done many myself) emphasizing Virginia's great back roads. Everyone should try the Goshen and Rockbridge rides and at least once in your life, you need to make the trek to Burkes Garden. What a great destination and ride.
I've waited a long time for a road ride book for Virginia. Fortunately, I now have one and it is good. I highly recommend it to all Virginia cyclists. Happy Riding,
The book is laid out very well. I love that the author gives the VA Gazetteer page numbers for each ride. I trust anyone who studies those big red books. The author has also made each ride description an entertaining read with little factoids about each area that you'll be riding in.
All in all it seems to be a well reseached book and I can't wait to go out and explore. I live in Norther Virginia and love my state. It truly is beautiful and there is so much to see. The author knows this and has given us a great sampling of what Virginia has to offer the road rider. And most trips in the mountains are so very nicely complimented by the plethera of world class mountain biking trails just off the road.
Happy reading and riding.
A must have for any road cyclist wanting a dependable guide of road routes in Virginia.
