Try www.abebooks.com - on the 2nd page of 41 Lonely Planet guides listed was a place in WA state called Bob's Books that had a couple of copies of LP cycling guides but not cheap (30-35 bucks).

ABE = American Book Exchange. I queried "Lonely Planet cycling guides" under Keywords...

You might create a favorites search at ebay and ABE. They will then send you an email when someone posts one of the books you want.

If you need, I can pick some up in the local store and mail them to you.

Oh, that's cool, I didn't know one could order direct from their website, or that they shipped international. Good to know!
