CNN Travel has published my story: “10  of the world’s best motorcycle rides” (August 13, 2013).

CNN 10 best motorcycle ridesSaddle up for ten sublime rides (from one day to two weeks) whose scenic beauty and cultural intrigue is spiced by the thrill of twisties and smooth hardtop where motorcyclists can crank open the throttle.

Of course, I write about California’s awesome Pacific Coast Highway (which I rode as recently as two weeks ago) and my old stompin’ ground–the Yorkshire Dales, which I used to ride on a 250cc Lambretta scooter!

But check out the rides in South Africa… Turkey… Norway… Morocco… the Pyrenees… and, of course, Cuba.
