  1. Portland Mercury

    (verified owner):

    “A super relevant and straightforward city biking handbook that I would recommend gifting to someone who’s just getting started biking. Blue lists out everything about traffic laws, gear, and getting around that most people have to learn the hard way, with plenty of focus on often-ignored topics like hauling kids by bike and fear of riding in the road. I’ve wanted a jargon-free, readable, honest city biking guide to exist for a long time and Blue’s is it.”

  2. The Atlantic Cities

    (verified owner):

    “Blue’s approach is down-to-earth, practical, and kind. She’s got tons of good advice, and she delivers it in plain English without getting all preachy or judgy. … And her book is what anyone who wants to start enjoying bicycle transportation can use: a collection of hard-won wisdom, delivered by someone who really cares.”

    “… And that is just what I loved about Everyday Bicycling altogether: the passion and infectious enthusiasm that comes across from the author on the subject of cycling.”
