Use your bicycle for transportation any time during Bike to Work week (Sunday, May 16, through Saturday, May 22). Post a comment here describing the experience. Each report constitutes a contest entry. That means the more errands you run, and the more commutes you make, the better your chances of winning. And if that weren’t enough, reports from Lenawee County residents count twice! The winner will be determined by random drawing on May 23.
This is a fantastic book. As any reader of the BikeSnobNYC blog would expect, the book is terrifically funny. But it’s also full of really smart commentary and thought-provoking perspectives on bikes, bike messengers, lone wolves, cars and drivers, the Amish, labels, identities, subcultures, gentrification, spandex, anti-veloism, the relationship between film history and determining when the temperature is warm enough to ride, and so much more. In a word, it’s a delightful riff on that mad-crazy mix that is life on two wheels. It even comes with stickers and a smattering of honest-to-goodness worthwhile advice. Be sure to check it out.
