It's about bikes, bike riding and bike riders ... and it's funny ... ( )

The opposite of snobbery. Good solid advice and really pretty hilarious. A must-read for every biker. Thanks, Juanita. ( )

So help me, I LOLed. Quirky look at cycling cultures, history and gear -- definitely an NYC focus, but funny for anyone who rides and follows cycling trends. ( )

The best book about cycling ever. ( )
  bibliosk8er | Aug 14, 2012 |
Fun, kind of a pointless diversion, really just a pep talk for beginning cyclists. I did get the stickers out of the back because I was the first person to check this book out at my library. I want to point out though for those that don't know Mr. Snob spends a lot of time sticking it to bike snobs and lampooning the "cycling community" (whatever that is)as a whole. So his handle has a lot irony value. Just wanted to put that out there for people that are put off by his name.And sorry dude, you are wrong about fenders. If it rains take the bus. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0811869989, Hardcover)

Cycling is exploding in a good way. Urbanites everywhere, from ironic hipsters to earth-conscious commuters, are taking to the bike like aquatic mammals to water. BikeSnobNYC cycling's most prolific, well-known, hilarious, and anonymous blogger brings a fresh and humorous perspective to the most important vehicle to hit personal transportation since the horse. Bike Snob treats readers to a laugh-out-loud rant and rave about the world of bikes and their riders, and offers a unique look at the ins and outs of cycling, from its history and hallmarks to its wide range of bizarre practitioners. Throughout, the author lampoons the missteps, pretensions, and absurdities of bike culture while maintaining a contagious enthusiasm for cycling itself. Bike Snob is an essential volume for anyone who knows, is, or wants to become a cyclist.
