Cycling, the biggest thing to hit personal transportation since the horse, is redefining the way urbanites everywhere commute, shop, exercise, accessorize, and recreate. In this wickedly funny rant and rave, blogger and cyclist BikeSnobNYC offers a unique look at the ins and outs of cycling, from its history and hallmarks to its wide range of unique practitioners. He spares no one, not even himself, as he lampoons the missteps, pretensions, and absurdities of "bike culture," all the while maintaining a contagious enthusiasm for cycling itself. The Bike Snob book tour is brought to you by KNOG. Join BikeSnobNYC at The powerHouse Arena for a chance to win a bike lover's prize pack! Featuring cool products and cycling gear from KNOG and other companies.
