When I decide on a vacation location, I buy bicycle routes books through many sources: The local bike club, book stores, travel bureaus, Amazon.com and local Department of Transportation. The books have led us to many beautiful bike trails. One of our favorites is in Rhode Island from Providence to Bristol 30 miles of a paved trail. I also ride my bike to work every day year around.
