Description

"Equal parts critical manifesto and tender mini-memoir about a boy and his bikes" from Eben Weiss, blogger and author of The Enlightened Cyclist (GQ).

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.

"This is a social manual that should be bundled with every bike shipped in America." -- Christian Lander, author of Stuff White People Like

"I like to think I know a thing or two (or three) about being ruthless and relentless -- either trying to win the Tour or fighting cancer. The Snob knows it too. Keeping us dorks in line is tough work. I take pleasure in getting picked on by the Snob, slightly more pleasure in reading his writing, but take the most pleasure punishing his ass (my payback) on the bike either in Central Park or on 9W/River Road. Long live the Snob." -- Lance Armstrong
