New Book about Bicycling the Southern Tier

Lorraine Veisz biked the Southern Tier with WomanTours a couple years ago and then went on to do what the rest of us only dream of - write a book about it.

Conquering the Borderlands is a beautifully written and wonderfully illustrated tribute to her 3000-mile bicycle trek and the lands she rode through. She weaves historical stories about the roads, towns and geography of the Southern Tier into her personal bike journey across the country.

It's a must-read for everyone considering doing a southern tier bike tour themselves. You can find it for sale through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, AuthorHouse and Adventure Cycling.

I found myself sad when I turned over the final page. I didn't want her journey to end. We'd both been having such a good time.
