Title: Take Your Bike
Family Rides in the Rochester Area
The dynamic duo behind Footprint
Press -- Rich &
Sue Freeman -- have revised and
expanded one of their most popular titles. Take Your Bike
scores extra points for truth in advertising, since it is a
guidebook for the best places to, well, take your bike in the
The guidebook is packed with maps
and details for 42 bicycling trails, the very best places to ride
in Niagara, Orleans, Monroe, Wayne, Livingston, Cayuga, Ontario
and Seneca Counties.
Learn where to park, how long
you'll be riding, amenities to find along the way, and the type
and difficulty of terrain to expect. The trails range from easy,
paved bike paths to more rugged mountain biking trails. Learn
local history and discover new places to ride, even if you've
been a life-long resident.
This example, from Orleans County:
"Just east of Medina, off Route 31, Culvert Road passes
under the [Erie] Canal. Featured in Ripley's Believe It Or
Not, it's the only road that passes under the Erie Canal.
Built in 1823, it's an interesting sight and worth the side trip
to take a look."
Response to the first edition of Take
Your Bike: "My husband is an avid biker who enjoys
long road rides. I won't do that with the kids, so he was
thrilled to be able to get us biking on trails. "Take Your
Bike" was the real impetus for this and a blessing to me to
know where we were going and what we were doing. And, I know the
kids will be safe and have exercise and fun! Thanks." -
