Bicycling is a uniquely exciting way to learn about U.S. Civil War history. Because bike navigation requires you to focus on roads and landmarks, it is easy to learn about battlefield geography and the impact of a battle on local farming families. Especially with a guidebook that helps one to stay oriented, the learning experience extends well beyond military tactics and maneuvers. You can explore an “outdoor classroom” full of monuments, wayside exhibits, and beautiful landscapes.
So, why not make learning even easier with a touring guidebook or a set of downloadable bike maps?!
Antietam, Chickamauga, and Gettysburg
There is no better way to learn American history than on two wheels. The key is to arrive at a battlefield with some basic historical knowledge, but also a keen awareness of the road network and bicycling amenities that will keep you safe, healthy, and happy. That’s the purpose of Civil War Cycling’s guidebooks and maps. They are packed with color photos, color maps, and historical summaries that appeal to visual, experiential learners
What are people saying about our Civil War travel guides?
Our reviewers and customers strike a common theme:
“After following the book’s Culp’s Hill course on a balmy Saturday morning in May, I’m sold that there may be no better way to tour the battlefield than on two wheels. The opportunity to cruise past the landscape’s open fields, rocky hills, and woodlots, while easily hopping on and off bike for frequent stops to read monuments or signage or to snap photographs, is incomparable.” ~Civil War Times
“The best ways to truly see a battlefield are by walking and biking. And biking a battlefield such as Gettysburg provides a rush like no other. Sue has produced a valuable book about how to ride that most hallowed Civil War ground. A definite keeper.” ~John Banks, journalist, blogger, author
