by Nick Hand


For some, bike to work day, is just once a year. For others, biking is an everyday joy and the only way to connect with community and the land. Hand's book is born out of respect and love for people who create and restore communities with their talent and passion. Having logged over 6,500 miles in his home turf in the British Isles, he found an opportunity to bicycle the Hudson Valley while his wife was on assignment in New York. Hand introduces the lucky reader to 20 different people on his journey (with their own words) including Woody Guthrie's granddaughter, an ax maker, and a couple maple syrup producers. His own photography accompanies each artisan. This is a small book and much too short so take your time and enjoy.
