John Hermann's fourth edition of Motorcycle Journeys Through the Alps & Beyond is the complete resource for any traveler to this part of Europe. Now covering more area than any previous edition, John "King of the Alps" Hermann brings nearly 100 trips to life. Everything has been updated: Hermann's fun-to-read text has been thoroughly refreshed, with more new trips in the Pyrenees and the Picos de Europa mountain ranges, the maps now have mountain relief backgrounds to view the exciting changes in topography, and Hermann has added spectacular new pictures.
Riders of all brands of bikes the world over have kept Motorcycle Journeys Through the Alps in their tank bags ever since the first edition in 1993. And no wonder: all of the important roads and passes are described and critiqued. Every region of the Alps is covered: Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Italy, France, and other special Alpine lookalike places such as Corsica, Slovenia, and the Pyrenees are included.
Each trip has a detailed route description, easy-to-follow maps, and unique photographs—all brought to life by Hermann's informed and witty narration. Local customs, history, and amusing travel anecdotes dot every page to enrich your journey.
