Bike Snob

Cycling is the biggest thing to hit personal transport since the horse. The hottest new trend for urban hipsters, the saving grace of carbon-conscious activists and the weapon of choice for lycra-clad roadies; the bicycle is the road-side stallion of modern man. Written by BikeSnobNYC – arguably cycling’s most prolific, popular, and funniest blogger – this is a unique look at the ins and out of cycling, from its history and hallmarks to its bizarre range of practitioners. He lampoons the pretensions and absurdities of ‘bike culture’ while maintaining a contagious enthusiasm for cycling itself. So, whether you are a lone wolf, a retro grouch, a contraption captain, or simply someone who fancies a new hobby, Bike Snob is the must-have bible to the mysterious world of cycling.
