 Rides from the Ranney-Crawford House - Biking Cue Sheets

The following cue sheets represent a selection of bicycling tours from the Ranney-Crawford House Bed and Breakfast. Those listed as road rides are, for the most part, on scenic, paved, country roads with little traffic or wide shoulders. The mountain bike rides are on a variety of roads, mostly dirt with some single track trails. I think they're accurate, but an occasional error could be a problem, so bring a map ( a compass wouldn't hurt either). As you're probably aware, cycling has its dangers, and I can't take responsibility for any mishaps which may occur.

Beside these rides, there are many others in the area, please feel free to call or e-mail me (arnyglim@ranney-crawford.com) about them (corrections appreciated), or about making arrangements for a stay. I'm a serious cyclist and I enjoy taking guests out on bicycling tours of the area. For bike rental information contact : the Westhill Bicycle Shop in Putney (www.westhillshop.com ) or the Bratlleboro Bicycle Shop in Brattleboro (www.bratbike.com)
