I have close to forty bike touring books that range from the 1970's to quite recent ones that I would like to donate to this cause. However, I would prefer to send them in bulk to a centralized US repository to handle any further lending. Suggestions on how to structure this are welcome.
Many are dated,hardback and have only historically useful information or are just good inspiring reads---
9 Dervla Murphy; 2 Bettina Selby; 2 Bodfish California Guides; 12 California tour guides on and off road; AYH N. American Bicycle Atlas(1973); Colwell's Guide to Bicycle trails (1974); Rakowski Adventure Cycling in Europe (1981); Karen&Gary Hawkins Bicycle Touring In Europe (1980); Lloyd Sumner-The Long Ride (1978); Bernard Magnouloux-Travels With Rosinante (1988); Dan Buettner- Sovietrek Across Russia and a few others.
They are all nice to have on my shelf but I have read and learned from them and now other cyclists should have access to them.
