From country lanes to city centers, everyone is getting on a bike: it offers a cheap, independent, green, and healthy way to explore. While cycle touring has been around for decades, biking in cities abroad is a newer phenomenon, coinciding with the rise of “cycle chic,” new urban bike routes, and city-sponsored rental services.

Thames & Hudson has joined with the sophisticated cycling brand, Rapha Racing, to produce a series of city-cycling guides geared to seeing Europe on two wheels. Each of the eight compact volumes in the boxed set features cycle-friendly neighborhoods in London, Paris, Copenhagen, Barcelona, and more, complete with itineraries, cycle maps, and cyclist-friendly places to visit. The guides are aimed at people interested in casual exploration, but there is also information for hardcore racing enthusiasts. Designed with the cyclist in mind, the slim paperbacks will fit easily into a backpack or back pocket.
Andrew Edwards is a graphic designer and amateur racer. He is a co-author of Fixed: Global Fixed-Gear Bike Culture. He lives in England.
