This is the definitive mountain biking bible for Canada's Atlantic Provinces. The winding trails of New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island are just crying out for a ride. There's a mind-boggling variety of choices in this beautiful region, from mountains to coast, valleys to bogs, forest to barrens. The rich history and unspoiled scenery of these provinces draw visitors from around the world, and a mountain bike tour is one of the best ways to discover it all for yourself. And if you're the kind of rider that loves it fresh, get ready for single-track nirvana. Many of the trails in Mountain Bike! Atlantic Canada are so fresh that you won't find them described anywhere else - and several were even named by the authors. No matter your interests or skill level, you can find a place to get rolling. See the country on one of the converted railbed trails, trace the coastline on historic roadways, or go for broke on a trail network created by fiendish local riders. Each route profile features at-a-glance key information, a thorough ride description, a detailed trail map, helpful sources of information, proximity of important services, valuable commentary on elevation changes and possible hazards and a rescue index. Mountain Bike! The Atlantic Canada also features candid and evocative photographs, vivid descriptions of native flora and fauna, a glossary of mountain biking terms, tips on mountain biking etiquette, and even a metric conversion appendix for touring Yanks.
