Lonely Planet Cycling Australia - 2001

Postby Sprocket » Tue Apr 15, 2014 10:01 am

I recently purchased a copy of the more up-to-date LP to replace a lost 2001 version. I recall the 2001 as having some much more interesting rides in it. I've looked for a second-hand copy but they seem to be few and far between.

Any generous BNAers out there prepared to scan one or more of the good rides from the 2001 version and make the available here to be PMed on request?

I see RonK has the east coast one scanned. I'd love a copy of that. Can I PM you RonK?

Hi RonK,

I have seen you also refer to a few rides in this book and offering it around. I am currently planning a tour up to Sydney from Melbourne and have just been researching into the best route options. I would love to PM you but it seems I do not have the privileges to do so or I have not worked it out yet haha :) would be much appreciated if I could grab a pdf copy of this version of you as the most current lonely planet book does not offer as many of the rides and does not assist me as much in this trip.

Thanks in advanced,

Nick

Hi there - I too have a copy of the latest Lonely Planet Cycling Guide...purchased it for the route up the Barry Way and other routes recommended by others here on this forum...The ride isn't actually detailed in the newer edition...would love to also see a few more ride suggestions and options in the VIc pages of the '01 guide...possible for another file share?

Cheers - Johnno

Well, it seems this thread is still generating plenty of interest despite the guide book by now being nearly 15 years old.
To clarify, I have a scan of the East Coast Explorer route from Melbourne to the Gold Coast. It's not the whole guide book. This route only appeared in the first edition.
I'm happy to share with anyone who is interested. If you want a copy, PM an email address.
If you ride any or all of the route it would be of benefit to future tourists if you could post any updated route information here.
I will request the mods to update the thread title to: "Lonely Planet 2001 East Coast Touring Route" and to make the thread sticky.
Over to you mods.

Abe books is another place to look for books too
http://www.abebooks.com/

Though the price from Amazon of around $4us is to good to beat .. Abes cheapest is around $8us.

More often than not it's the postage that determines the true price.

We've gone from none available to just having to pay a bit of postage :roll: so: "Don't worry, be happy" :mrgreen:
