Biking Normandy: The Invasion Beaches, The Best Book Ever About Cycling Normandy. The Steve Says Cycling Series version 1.0. Come take a bike ride through the history of D-Day: the Omaha and Utah invasion beaches, the cliffs of Pointe du Hoc, the British port at Arromanches, the American Cemetery, the apple orchards, hedgerows and little towns of this rural region. This book contains several day trip routes from Bayeux, as well as a circular route through Normandy. As an added bonus, Biking Normandy includes the stories and recollections of several of the Army Rangers who landed here on June 6, 1944 (from their 1999 reunion trip that I covered for the newspaper I worked for at the time).
