The Moderately Lazy Biker's Guide to Litchfield County by Rick Sowash
In his booklet, “The Moderately Lazy Biker’s Guide to Litchfield County (and Just Beyond),” Sowash writes that bikers like him “love a long downhill glide, have no complaint with more-or-less level terrain, but abhor a steep climb. Though decidedly hilly, even mildly mountainous, Litchfield County offers many a glorious ride for the moderately lazy.”
Sowash, 61, has taken it upon himself to study the maps and discover 16 bike rides in northwestern Connecticut (and just beyond) that are perfect for the moderately lazy biker. He has bicycled every foot of these routes, and his directions are precise and delightful. Maps, mileage, pavement conditions, shoulder widths and points of interest are all noted.
