User Review  - EvalineAuerbach - LibraryThing

This is exactly what bicyclists need to bike the Arizona Trail. It's sold here because Oracle is ON the Arizona Trail, with two trailheads nearby. The book is also a great armchair traveller book for those who don't bike but like to dream. Available at Oracle Market Read full review
