Saturday at Taylor Books, author Robin Boyd will be signing copies of her new book, The Mountain Biker’s Guide to West Virginia from 1 PM to 3 PM. Robin’s enthusiasm for biking in the Mountain State is evident. She says, “I’ve mountain biked in Europe, Africa and Australia, and all across the United States, and I stand by the fact that the best mountain biking in the world is in West Virginia.”

Robin Boyd is a professor and a journalist, but she’s also a competitive athlete, mom, and bicycling advocate. In the book, she tells of her favorite places to ride, all over the state, covering different skill levels and locations ranging from remote to just five minutes from downtown Charleston.

The book also features photography by Danny Boyd. Already established as an educator, film maker and wrestler, Danny adds yet another “slash,” as he shows off his prowess as an adventure photographer.

The Mountain Biker’s Guide to West Virginia is available at stores around the state or from the West Virginia Book Company at 888-982-7472. The book retails for 8.95.

If you go: Robin Boyd will be at Taylor Books, 226 Capitol Street, Charleston, Saturday May 6, from 1 PM to 3 PM.
