The publishers Verlag Esterbauer produce this large range of Bikeline cycle-specific guides under a sub brand, Cycline. They cover many popular long distance routes. They are mainly in German but some routes have been translated into English. We show here only the English ones but, since they are map-based, the German versions are still quite usable even if you don't speak the language.
Brilliant for planning before you go, and for detailed, turn-by-turn route instructions when you are there. In some areas the Bikeline guides are similar (but with more information) to those given out for free by the local Tourist Information offices. Even so, if you want a detailed map with short lists of B&Bs, hotels, places to eat and bike repair shops, this is good stuff.
