There is a turn by turn mileage log when applicable. A "preferred trail" icon is used to indicate a particularly great ride in a given are for those on a limited time schedule. Rides are included for all levels of ability, but emphasis is given to the intermediate/advanced rider. A few severe/extreme rides are included for those on the lunatic fringe. Each ride has been personally selected and ridden by the author over the past 23 editions and updated annually. You are guaranteed a favorite ride each time with no "filler". Many of the trails can be found nowhere else as they are based on personal exploration by the author. All rides are current and legal.
