Completely updated travel books from Whitehorse Press

Whitehorse Press is well known for publishing a wide range of fantastic books geared towards motorcyclists. Their motorcycle travel books dubbed the "Motorcycle Journeys Series" are MUST have guides for those planning or considering trips to destinations covered by them.

They've recently updated their bestseller "Motorcycle Journeys Through the Southwest - Second Edition by Marty Berke" and "Motorcycle Journeys Through the Alps and Beyond." The Alps and Beyond book with it's full color pictures of spectacular roads and attractions will surely have you dreaming of the countless rides of a lifetime documented within its covers.

MOTORCYCLE JOURNEYS THROUGH THE ALPS and BEYOND

Not only does this newest edition of John Hermann's Motorcycle Journeys through the Alps and Beyond show you how to find every Alpine road you have ever heard or dreamed about, it will also get you to hidden road treasures that even the locals don't know about. Now covering more of Europe than any previous edition, John "King of the Alps" Hermann brings nearly 100 dream trips to life.

Hermann's fun-to-read text has been thoroughly refreshed, with many brand new trips including some in the Pyrenees and the Picos de Europa mountain ranges. The maps now have mountain relief backgrounds to let you preview the exciting topography, and Hermann has added spectacular new pictures. All contact information has been updated.

The book first plants you in the middle of the Alps at the Swiss village of Andermatt, where every road is a traffic-free wonder. From there you can circle Mt. Blanc west across France to check out marvels such as the Grand Goulet as well as all the mountain climbs made famous on the Tour de France. You'll be more than tempted to try some of the highest passes in Europe such as the Col d'Agnel and wild single-lane tracks like La Bonette and Col de Lombard, only to finally twist over the Col de Braus to the Mediterranean with its beckoning towns and sun-filled beaches.

South from Andermatt the book highlights major pass roads leading down to breathtaking Italian finger lakes and the snaking roads between them. Or you can ride east from Andermatt to the mighty mountain roads around Davos and St. Moritz and Liechtenstein and the spectacular roads of the Italian Dolomites where you and fellow motorcyclists rule the roads and cafes and hotels. Motorcycle heaven.

Farther south is the mountainous Mediterranean isle of Corsica, tourist-free and chock full of fantastic motorcycle roads. Where they are and how to get there are all in this book. Plus all the wonders of the Pyrenees, almost as high as the Alps, half in France and half in Spain. And don't miss the little known Costa Verde (it is green) and the dominating towers and roads of the Picos de Europa, out west on the north Atlantic coast of Spain.

Anyone considering or dreaming of a European trip on two wheels, or four for that matter, needs this book. It has been the guidebook of choice since its first edition in 1993, and with good reason. Each trip has a detailed route description, easy-to-follow maps, places to stay, culinary hints, and unique photographs-all brought to life by Hermann's informed and witty narration. Local customs, history, and amusing travel stories help to enrich your journey.

Paperback, 5.5 x 8.5 inches, 416 pages, full color illus and maps, USD $29.95. Copies are available at your local bookstore, dealer, or directly from the publisher, Whitehorse Press, 107 East Conway Road, Center Conway, NH 03813-4012.

MOTORCYCLE JOURNEY THROUGH THE SOUTHWEST:

In this new, updated edition, motojournalist Marty Berke shows the way to the best scenic, curving roads the great American Southwest has to offer.

From favorite belt-notching rides like Pikes Peak Highway, the Million Dollar Highway, and Route 66, to small no-name two-lane delights that lead to places like Bryce, Zion, and Grand Canyon National Parks, unforgettable roads and adventures await those wanting to explore the “four-corner states” of Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Utah on two wheels.

The book suggests 64 separate riding trips, each about a day in length, with seasoned advice on the best campgrounds, parks, scenic landmarks, and restaurants along the way. Topographical maps, clear directions, and plenty of photographs enhance Berke’s lively description of each ride.

This popular travel guide for motorcyclists captures all the grandeur and natural beauty of the region and introduces riders to places and sights they would never find on their own. Now completely updated, new generations of riders can enjoy the celebrated treasures as well as the little-known gems the region has to offer, refreshingly free of tourist traffic. For, as Marty says, “a journey, unlike a trip, is an opportunity for wandering and exploring new territory with all five senses."

Format: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches, Pages: 320, Art: 144 b/w pictures and 92 maps, Price: $19.95. Copies are available at your local bookstore, dealer, or directly from the publisher, Whitehorse Press, 107 East Conway Road, Center Conway, NH 03813-4012.
