Reviews

Sara Griffen, President, the Olana Partnership: “Cycling the Hudson Valley” is the most comprehensive guide I’ve seen to date on the subject.   It includes stunning photographs that tempt the reader to plan bike trips to hitherto unexplored regions in the Valley.  The book is compact and beautifully formatted, with sections organized by colored tabs; the clear, concise maps leave nothing to guesswork.  Photographs and commentary from the Valley’s rich history add a layer of interest that makes this a truly exceptional guide.”

Mary Kay Vrba, CTP, Executive Director, Dutchess County Tourism: “We have received so many great comments on the new “Cycling the Hudson Valley” guide. Cyclists love the format and all the good information available to them at their fingertips.  In fact non-cyclist have asked where to buy copies. The Hudson Valley is rapidly growing as a biking destination and this guide with its 40 maps will help to invite cyclists to spend time discovering the history, art, food and nature of the majestic Hudson River.”

Steve Rosenberg, Executive Director, Scenic Hudson Land Trust, Director of Land Preservation, Scenic Hudson: “With its incredible wealth of parks, historic sites and world-class landscapes, the Hudson Valley is a dream come true for recreational cyclists.  The region has all of the things discriminating touring cyclists look for, with a network of rural roads that connect tiny historic hamlets and villages, the homes of presidents and famous artists, farm stands and restaurants for “locavores” and classic ice cream and hamburger stands as well, and pristine natural areas along the shores of the scenic Hudson River.   Cycling the Hudson Valley provides just the sort of detailed information about routes, amenities and services that novice and more experienced cyclists need to get a true insider’s view of this remarkable region.”
