Amish farmers, bluegrass music, Elvis memorabilia, reminders of the War Between the States, the roots of America grow deep in the Appalachians. This completely updated new 3rd edition is a collection of 38 tours through Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio, Virginia, Kentucky, West Virginia, and North Carolina, arranged around a series of base camps, with four or five rides plotted from the same spot for convenience and comfort. It features topographical maps for each trip, specific directions, and tips on the best places to eat, sleep, and visit.
"Journeys Through the Pacific Northwest does an outstanding job of uncovering scenic routes through four states and British Columbia. Author Bruce Hansen serves up important details for each exhaustively researched road, like the best places to eat and sleep, and backs it up with intimate knowledge of the region." - Motorcycle Cruiser
"Bruce Hansen is a generous guy. He knows the roads around Washington, Oregon, Northern California and British Columbia and wants to share. The second edition of Hansen's "Motorcycle Journeys Through the Pacific Northwest" reads like a conversation with a friend. Hansen says he doesn't pretend to know every place to stop for a photo or to get a good slice of pie, but he seems to come close. With a palpable enthusiasm for the open road, he urges riders to get out of Portland, to head out along rivers, through forested wilderness or to the coast. The full color photos in this travel guide will make you long for summer. When he's not out riding, Hansen teaches writing through Portland State University." - Oregonian
