As well as our own Velo-city:Perth book, you might also like  Where to Ride – Perth which features 43 recreational rides, all within an hour’s radius of the Perth GPO. Each ride is graded from one to five stars in difficulty with one star rides being flat, short, and easily achievable by a beginner on the most basic of bicycles. The rides range in length from 10kms to 74kms. Written by Brent Meyer, who despite rumours to the contrary isn’t the dad of the international stars Cameron and Travis Meyer, Where to Ride Perth is published by Bicycling Australia, which has a stable of magazines as well as a full series of Where to Ride books.
