Van der Plas Publications / Cycle Publishing was started in 1997 with four books. Since then, we have introduced about 4 new books each year, and in addition to our “mainstay” of cycling books, we
now also have books on manufactured housing, golf, baseball, and strength training.
Our offices are located in San Francisco, where we do editorial work, as well as administration, publicity, and design. Our books are
warehoused in Kimball, Michigan, which is close to the companies that print most of our books and is conveniently located to supply our book trade distributors and the major book wholesalers.
Our books are available through the general and Internet book trade as well as some specialty stores in the U.S., Britain, and Australia.
However, because even the biggests stores can only stock a limited number of different books, the book you want may have to be special-ordered. That’s the reason we offer these books on this web site, giving you a convenient, quick, and secure way of buying the books that you may not find in your local book store. We can take orders both for U.S. destinations and abroad (please note the additional mailing options for foreign orders).
In addition to publishing books, our
principal, Rob van der Plas, PE, a
professional engineer with an intimate
knowledge of the field, offers consulting
services in the field of bicycle technology
and safety issues. You can get relevant
information by clicking “Consulting.” Or you
can reach him using the
"contact us" page.
If you have any comments or suggestions whether they
are related to existing books, subjects you would like to see covered, or the contents of this web site we will be pleased to hear from you, using the “Contact Us” feature on this page.
