Overview

We wanted to publish a book that would be unique among bicycle tour guides. Cranks was graphically designed to reflect the old time, nostalgic, Norman Rockwell ambiance of the Cooperstown area. The book was expanded to include a how-to bike as well as a where-to bike section in an attempt to entice newcomers to the sport. Cranks was made more user friendly by formatting each tour's directions and map on single, perforated, tear-out "cue sheets" that allow you to leave the bulky book behind. The rides were organized like a bicycle rally to provide an almost infinite array of tour options and interconnections for cyclists of all abilities. These innovations have been extremely well received. The only complaint we hear is that Cranks is too nice to tear apart!
