Full Description


Beneath the glitter and glamour, New York hides a number of surprising chances to pursue active outdoor sports. A small but growing band of urban pioneers have figured out how to live the active lifestyle and live in the city too. This guide features detailed descriptions of rides, routes, resources and hangouts for 24 sports. Rediscover the mighty Hudson River from a sea kayak, get a wicked mountain bike workout in Queens or Staten Island, and meet urban pioneers who climb buildings and bridges and who go caving in Manhattan's labyrinth of tunnels. Each chapter covers a favourite adventure sport or activity along with brief profiles of the best gear outlets. Each chapter is also presented in four parts: city centre; suburbs; day trips; and weekend attractions.
