"This is a wonderful book that captures the breadth and depth of the sport and experience of cycling. A great tour of the mental, physical, cultural and historical paths a bicycle can travel"
—Michael Weiss, Chair, Tour of Missouri Professional Bicycle Race; Owner, Big Shark Bicycle Company
"Cycling – Philosophy for Everyonereminds its readers of the joy, freedom, and accomplishment one feels when riding a bicycle, whether that entails encountering Manhattan traffic on the way to the Central Park bandit race, cresting Mount Tamalpais to the unmatched views of redwoods and San Francisco, or punching through gale force winds on an isolated Midwest farm road far from everyone and everything.
I found myself fondly recalling the new bike I received for Christmas that first provided freedom from my parents' oversight and produced a liberating sensation that I was the master of my domain as I explored Chicago as a 10-year-old.
You too will reconnect to bicycling in ways you never expected long before you reach the last page."
