Open Road Press is pleased to introduce its second title, Bicycle Touring How-To: What We Learned, which is for sale now in the Open Road Press store. And we have a special introductory offer. In fact, we’re prepared to give this away…for a limited time only.
“How-To” is all about learning how to bicycle tour from the ground up–because that’s what we did! When Debbie and I ventured across country in 2010 just after marrying, we needed to get up to speed quickly. An eBook like this would have come in handy. Bicycle Touring How-To contains tips on equipment, security, pre- and post-trip logistics, the daily routine, technology, and much more. You’ll even learn how much a tour can cost and how to reduce expenses. The knowledge expands from the eBook to the Internet with many web links to further define technical terms, to provide more information on equipment, and to illustrate sample journals, maps, and logs. Those who have read about our own tour in Two Are Better: Midlife Newlyweds Bicycle Coast to Coast know that we like color photos. Bicycle Touring How-To has a few of its own. Written in a conversational style with practicality in mind, this 15,000-word eBook enhances the touring experience, whether you choose to tour on a skinny saddle over hill and dale or vicariously from the comfort of your living room recliner.
An occasion like this is cause for celebration, and we’d like to share in that. We also think that anyone who would find this book helpful would love the colorful account of our coast-to-coast bicycle trip. For the remainder of this week only, ending Friday at midnight, we’ll throw in a copy of the Bicycle Touring How-To eBook when you purchase an eBook version of Two Are Better. This offer is available exclusively from the Open Road Press store, and it expires at midnight on June 7, 2013. Open Road Press eBooks are available in .mobi format for Kindle and .epub format for all other e-readers.
