Over highways and byways and converted railway roadbeds, Biking to Blissville gives maps and precise directions for about forty bicycle rides through the most scenic areas of Maritime Canada. Most of the trips are loops. Each leads from a country inn, motel, or campground through uncrowded countryside, and author Kent Thompson has tested them all for fun, safety, and degree of difficulty. Thompson also suggests accomodations that fit cyclists tastes and purses, and the vagaries of the weather, from rustic campgrounds to opulent country inns, from old-time sporting camps to cozy bed-and-breakfasts.
