July 2 – Book has been Published. Woo hoo!

June 2023 Update, Park & Rail Trails guide book – Volume 2

Greetings fellow cyclists welcome to another season of pedaling to your heart’s content on the bikeways of Ontario. I hope you have started the season in earnest. You’ve lubed your chain, adjusted the brakes, raised your seat and have been out in the sunshine.

Not so much for me. I did buy a new hybrid gravel bike, a Giant Cypress 1 and have been out a few weekends to scout the last of the trails I needed for my next book. Research for this book keeps me at my desk (sigh) till I’m done, then the summer is mine.

I’ve been busy since the beginning of the year working on another bike trail guide. So this is going to be a short post…just to tell you that I don’t have the time to write a proper one till the book is done.

Book Preview

Instead, I’ll give you a sneak peek at the contents of my next book, which will be out in a few weeks.

This book is the 2nd volume of my first book, Best Park and Rail Trails in Ontario, published a few years ago. This one is similar with 60 new bicycle trails for you to discover. 30 rides are Park paths and another 30 are Rail Trails, some are very new.

I am in the middle of selecting photos and rendering maps for the layout. My Editor Jennifer and I have been working on the last details. We are making sure the text reads right and my typos get fixed. It’s going to be even better than the last guide.

Here is the working list, not yet finalized, of the TOC (table of contents) for Volume 2 of this new Park & Rail trail guide. And a mock-up of the proposed front cover.
