Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book is a celebration of the bicycle by people who ride...a tribute to one of the finest, most efficient, most useful machines ever invented. The 25 contributors are talented writers and cartoonists, each with a unique take on bicycling. Whether in critical observation, concern, memorial, fact, or in jest, each story and cartoon is definitely worth a look. You do not have to be a cycling expert to read this book; there is something here for everyone.

Contributions from around the globe include an essay from Pulitzer Prize winner Thomas Hylton; predictions for the future of cycling from Dirt Rag editor Maurice Tierney and Richard Fries, publisher of Bike Culture; an exclusive interview with Chris Carmichael (long time coach of Lance Armstrong); several essays from Pulitzer Prize nominee Gianna Bellofatto. Other contributors are Portland Magazine executive editor (and former New Yorker staffer) Ted Katauskas; Mason St. Clair; author Theresa Russell; and Andy (Ask the Mechanic) Wallen. Scattered throughout the book is a collection of cartoons from cartoonists whose work has appeared in a wide array of magazines including The New Yorker, Esquire, The Progressive, Dirt Rag, Oregon Cycling, The Funny Times, Discover, Guideposts, Reader's Digest and Forbes.

Contributing cartoonists include Jonny Hawkins, Andy Singer, Neal Skorpen, Bob Lafay, Bob LaDrew, Mason St. Clair, Brick, and Kate O'Kelley.

Synopsis:

The Bicycle Book: Wit, Wisdom & Wanderings is a celebration of the bicycle by people who love to ride. It's a tribute to one of the finest, most efficient, useful machines ever invented. It's packed with original stories, narratives and cartoons from a talented corps of writers and artists from around the world. The book features 32 articles and scattered throughout the book is a collection of 43 cartoons from artists whose work has appeared in a wide array of magazines. Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Thomas Hylton, kicks off the collection with Bicycling and Walking, a sensible, prescriptive editorial on why cycling-friendly communities are winners. On his heels is Keeping Up With Lance, Scott Roberts' exclusive, one-on-one interview with Chris Carmichael, Lance Armstrong's long time coach and friend. Two prominent names in cycling journalism - Richard Fries, editor of Bike Culture, and Maurice Tierney, publisher of Dirt Rag - comment on the future of bicycling. And that's just the beginning.
