This is the book Texas bikers have been waiting for. There’s plenty about what to see and do along the way, but the focus is on the rides: Where to go, what signs to look for, how far the next turnoff is, when to be especially alert for what’s around a sharp bend, when you can expect to relax a bit and just cruise. These 25 great rides have been scouted by Dorothy Waldman, who became a Biker Babe in her fifties when she finally mustered the courage to get on a motorcycle. She quickly discovered the thrills of riding the back roads of the Lone Star state, from the North Texas woodlands and lakes—“bliss on a bike”—to the pastoral Gulf Coast to the tricky ride in Big Bend country along the Rio Grande—“The most desolate, the most adventurous, and the most memorable sixty-seven miles of pure riding ecstasy or pure terror,” a ride to be attempted, she warns, only after you’ve fully mastered your bike. Such pithy appraisals pepper the directions and route descriptions in The Biker’s Guide to Texas. All rides are carefully mapped. They come with hints on what to see, where to eat and where to stay.
