Cycling Sojourner: A Guide to the Best Multi-Day Bike Tours in Washington

Leave a comment

CyclingSojournerWA_BookCover_July2013For the sixth year in a row, Washington tops the list for the being the most bike-friendly state in the Union. We have a lot of beautiful places to ride and soon there will be a guidebook called the Cycling Sojourner: A Guide to the Best Multi-Day Bike Tours in Washington by Ellee Thalheimer to showcase some of them. The Bicycle Alliance of Washington, the voice of bicycling statewide, is heading the fundraising drive for this book of 9-10 multi-day rides. Royalties from the book will support the efforts of the Bicycle Alliance to increase investments in bike infrastructure for everyday riders as well as bike travelers through its policy work on the state level.

I ride because it's fun. It's also healthy, good for the environment, and my gas budget but if it wasn’t fun, none of that would matter. It's what gets me on my bike almost every day, even when I'm tired, not feeling my best, or just not in the mood. No other form of "exercise" has equaled it. I used to love to run but I was injury-prone and couldn't do it every day. I certainly couldn't jog down to the store and come home with dinner. Walking is okay but definitely falls around midpoint on the fun scale. I enjoy it, especially when I'm walking with a friend, but am not exhilarated by it. So I ride.
