It is cold – we know that with every freezing bone in our Canberran bodies! This review should be ignored by everyone with a predilection for the warmer months because what I am about to recommend will only chill you to the core…

I know it seems silly recommending a book about outdoor activities in the middle of winter – but Canberra is often blessed with sun saturated winter days perfect for bike riding – so I thought I’d take the liberty!
Narelle Hards really knows Canberra and its gorgeous surrounds properly from the years she spent living and riding here. The book is incredibly well researched and beautifully presented. Colour photographs complement the hardest rides and make even mountain biking trails seem conquerable!
Where To Ride – Canberra also contains great sections of practical advice for first timers on road and off road.
Canberra truly is one of the greatest cities for cyclists and this is such a handy guide to have – encouraging and engaging – who could want more?
The rides are all ranked using the Where To Ride scale – which means you can prepare for an easy or hard ride accordingly. The clear and accurate maps accompanied by concise well written directions make this reviewer want to jump onto her little pink bike and head for the hills and mountain climbs… Almost. Perhaps in summer time? Still a girl can dream till then!
