Bill Thorness - Cycling the Pacific Coast


Sandy beaches, craggy sea stacks and towering redwoods inspire a cycling adventure like no other. Trace the contours of the Pacific Coast from Vancouver, B.C. to the Mexico border using this new Mountaineers Books guidebook. Set your wheels for all 1,900 miles or tackle sections. Perhaps include a side trip to Portland, or one of the wine country rambles. Preview the coast with Bill’s lively photo and map slideshow. Bill is also the author of Biking Puget Sound: 60 Rides from Olympia to the San Juans, and will have both books available for purchase and signing. Bill will share bike rides that everyone—regardless of fitness level or experience—will enjoy!
