Bike Shop Introduction

We’re pleased to announce that after a long hiatus, FreeWheeling Easy in Western Pennsylvania, the guide to the motor-free bicycling trails in Western PA, is back in print with fresh information on the enormous growth in the trail system over the past decade or two.

Thousands of people love and ride the Great Allegheny Passage. There are similar trails north and east of Pittsburgh. FreeWheeling Easy is the guide to short family trips, long day trips, and multi-day bicycling touring in this region.

This fourth edition, the first volume in a set, covers 29 trails in the Allegheny and Kiskiminetas River basins. For each trail the book has a 3-to-10 page write-up that gives a general description of the trail, historical notes, maps, local attractions, possible extensions for longer rides, driving directions to trailheads, and locations of amenities such as restrooms and restaurants. 

This book is a great gift for a bicyclist. One size fits all and there is no need to worry about compatibility with their bike parts. Many people remember the first three editions in 1995-2001, which sold over 15,000 copies, and are looking forward to the new edition

The retail price is $18.95 + tax and shipping.
