Discover Boston’s scenic and historic North Shore on two wheels

Minutes outside of the Hub bicyclists of all ages can enjoy historic villages, beautiful seashore and countryside. Featuring 22 rides, many with variations, Bicycling on Boston’s North Shore is the perfect guide for cyclists of all ages and abilities: for families with children, for university students wanting to explore off campus, and for power riders looking for a scenic workout. There are rides as short as seven miles as well as challenging itineraries approaching 50 miles. Since most trips begin at MBTA commuter rail stations, most are easily accessible—even to those without cars.

Each chapter begins with a short introduction to the terrain to be covered, plus a description of such highlights as historic sites, great views, and essential stops—including rest rooms and ice cream parlors. Ride itineraries are concise, with mileage and landmarks provided. The guide’s ease of use is enhanced by the clear maps hand-drawn by calligrapher R.P. Hale.

Whether you live there or are just visiting, Bicycling on Boston’s North Shore is the best guide to cycling the region.

"From Amesbury to Salem, Roger has captured the magic of Boston’s North Shore. This book offers miles of great cycling, scenic vistas and plenty of ice cream stops along the way. It provides all the things that make riding throughout the North Shore a real pleasure. This is great tandem territory. If you ride one, get this book!"Richard Lemieux, co-chairman, 2007, Montreal to Boston Stage Race, life-long cyclist

Bicycling on Boston’s North Shore showcases the many miles of quiet roads, beauty and history this area has. The routes provide something for the novice rider as well as the experienced cyclist."Leslie Ludtke, former President, New Hampshire Cycling Club and 2006 Masters Cyclocross National Champion

ROGER TURNER has been a life-long cyclist and learned early on that seeing the world from over the handlebars of a bicycle was a great way to view life. Turner incorporated this love of cycling with a love for writing in 2002 when he wrote Bicycling with Kids in DownEast Maine, published by Nicolin Fields Publishing. He lives in Bedford, New Hampshire with his wife, and their two children.
