THE CASUAL CYCLIST’S GUIDE

THE CASUAL CYCLIST’S GUIDE

The city and the bike – they were made for each other…

The Casual Cyclist’s Guide continues where Melbourne for Visitors and Casual Cyclists left off… With some steroids along the way.

A book about the city and the bike – and an ode to using one to enjoy the other. A book for the local rider and visiting rider alike…

Visually rich and content rich too, the book overflows with history, anecdotes, observations and thoughts for anyone tackling Melbourne on two wheels, centred around 25 or so riding routes. Find an Outdoor Lounge Room. Discover Museums You’ve Never Been To or even Foreign Sights in Familiar PlacesJourney on Guy Grossi’s progressive four-course Italian feast or discover a French chef’s favourite Asian eat spots in Footscray…
Bringing together contributions from a range of Melbourne architects, historians, chefs, designers and local identities, the guide goes beyond a book about bikes and is a unique book about the city itself. 
With hand drawn maps of Melbourne, design by cult agency Studio Pip & Co and illustrations from Melbourne artists Tin & Ed, it’s a beautifully designed little package too… Indeed a labour of love from many!
