What goes into our Books?
We only write about that, which we have personally tested.
One of the cornerstones of our success lies in the thorough research conducted by us on location. Ever metre described has been personally travelled by one of our editors and evaluated as to it's suitability for cycling. Should an official route not exist or is found to be unsuitable, then we seek out an optimal route or provide alternative routes. A close working relationship with local tourism bodies is created on the basis of this careful research.
Route description and accurate regional, as well as Town and city, maps.
Accurate maps made specifically for cyclists allow for easy navigation while providing route information about surface quality, distances, motor traffic levels, gradients and much more. Our pride are the digitally produced maps which deliver an optimum of detail while maintaining clear readability. To insure you don't lose your way in urban areas, where even the best regional maps fail, we include numerous detail maps. If that all isn't enough, than an accurate route description in the text guides you in the right direction. The information contained in the maps is added to by numerous, accurately researched and continually updated thematic symbols. Attractions, tourist facilities and important information is available at a glance.
Format and Construction
Designed for the handlebar bag.
An important characteristic of the bikeline cycling guides is the landscape format combined with the patented spiral binding system, making it ideal for the handlebar bag. The spiral binding, which sits protected under the spine, allows the books to be easily folded over themselves, guaranteeing a long life – after all, our books aren't meant to gather dust on the shelf.
Background Information and Accommodation
Only well rested cyclists are happy cyclists.
There is more to a successful tour than just finding your way. Our guides inform you about attractions, places of interest, history and interesting information for the cycling tourist. This information is completed with addresses, telephone numbers and opening times.
Everyone who has been on a long tour knows how tedious it can be to look for accommodation. Also here, we won't let you down. All our guides for multi-day tours contain a comprehensive list of accommodation providers with addresses, telephone numbers and a price category classification. Naturally, this list also includes private pensions, youth hostels and camping grounds. This should make it easy to find a place to sleep.
All guides are kept up to date
The best travel guide is useless if it is out of date. It is only natural, therefore, that the bikeline cycle touring guides are regularly updated. On average, a new edition is produces every 1.8 years. These are not simply reprints. Each new edition is researched before new information and corrections are incorporated and , if need be, changes to the routes are evaluated on site. An important contribution to these corrections is made by numerous readers who send letters to us, which helps us stay up to date. This way, with each new edition you have the most up to date information in your hand.
