Note the following path: c1-d3-e5-c4-a3-c2-e1-d3-c5-e4-g3-e3-c1. The Crab, of course, would have to take 12 moves to complete it. The Crabrider, however, could do each sixth of the tour in either 1 or 2 moves. Therefore it can do the whole thing in anything from 6 to 12 moves - including 7, of course.
