Editorial Reviews

Wall Street Journal | Elizabeth Gunnison | March 17, 2013Guidebooks Go Niche'Lovers of the printed page will be cheered to know that the profusion of smartphone apps and wireless hot spots isn't nudging all travel guidebooks into extinction. The category is simply adapting, welcoming more titles with quirky angles... Portland, Ore.-based writers Ellee Thalheimer and Lucy Burningham (an Off Duty contributor) combined their respective passions for bicycles and beer to create this slim volume. It includes 10 cycling routes around the Portland area, charting top breweries, bottle shops and beer-centric bars and restaurants to visit on the way. Alongside plenty of practical information for cyclists, including bike-parking locations and detailed route maps, the authors have interspersed tidbits of Portland culture tailored to fans of fixed-gear bicycles and good IPA-such as when the city's best beer festivals take place or where you can join in on a Sunday afternoon game of bike polo (it's a Portland thing).' Sunset Magazine | Heather Hansman | November 12, 2012It doesn't get more Portland than bikes and craft beer-except, perhaps, putting a bird on it-so it was only a matter of time before someone combined the two. Portland Monthly | Meaghan Morawski | November 15, 2012'Hop in the Saddle: A Guide to Portland's Craft Beer Scene, by Bike is a little red book coauthored by brew-loving bike riders Lucy Burningham, Ellee Thalheimer, and Laura Cary, that helps the thirsty cyclist map out her next pilsner pit stop with a thoroughly researched, but easy to use, compendium of bike routes, breweries, and bottle shops... There is a lot of entertainment value and information in this little book of bike and brew if you take the time to soak it up.' Smithsonian's 'Off the Road' Blog | Alastair Bland | August 24, 2012Your Unofficial Guide to Portland, Oregon's Many Brewpubs and Breweries'.. the book leads cyclists with a pedal-powered thirst from brewery to brewery, to those big and famous and those small and secret. Skeptics may ask if beer and bicycles have anything at all to do with one another. In Portland, they sure do.'
