Book Reviews


"About a month ago I ordered your publication "Cycling the Erie Canal". I just wanted to let you know that this is the very best bike map/guide I've ever seen. Very well done. I'll be biking the Erie Canal this coming fall and this guide gives almost all the information I will need. I wish all the cycling guides were as well done."


“Cycling the Erie Canal" is as good a guide book as I have ever seen. It is clear and easy to use, packed with information, maps, and pictures. How could you live in the region and not want - need a copy. It is a steal. You have given away all your hard learned secrets and opened up a heritage tourism treasure. Crossing NYS along the Erie Canal is destined to become an iconic experience."


"Many bike trail guidebooks are helpful, but this one is outstanding. Excellent maps show type of pavement, alternate routes, and facilities at a glance. Lists of museums and other sites prove this trip is much more than biking, so don't plan to average more than 40 miles/day. Lists of hotels and places to eat are essential. The spiral binding avoids breaking the spine. It's been worth the price already, a month before we hope to leave. Enjoy!"
