Now Funding: The Journal of Bicycle Femi...

Posted on

tl;dr: The first annual Journal of Bicycle Feminism is up on Kickstarter! Help make it happen, friends. August 1st was a scorcher, and around 3pm Julie the intern insisted that we cut short our work day and go get ice cream. No convincing arguments against this plan presented themselves, so she hopped onto the back […]

Happy Bookiversary! Our first two books ...

Posted on

Anna and Kelli at their release party (Photo by Luc Revel) Yesterday, Anna Brones posted on her blog about the 1-year anniversary of her book, The Culinary Cyclist (to celebrate, she includes the recipe for the book’s delicious peanut butter cookies, in case you needed a reason to click over there). I was taken aback. […]

Upper class cycling culture and the demi...

What happened to Portland’s bike scene? Maybe first it would help to envision what it used to be. There was this booming, diverse, vibrant DIY bike activist and bike fun scene that transformed this city, from Critical Mass to Shift to any number of wild initiatives popping up. Any night of the week, there was […]

The Vulva Bike: A true tale of shock, gl...

Posted on

When I first saw the ShockTwat on its inaugural journey, I marveled at it for two minutes straight and then snapped a photo with my phone at the last moment before it rolled away. When the time came to launch the Kickstarter campaign for Our Bodies, Our Bikes, I looked through my photos for a […]

Now Kickstarting Our Bodies, Our Bikes (...

It’s official: Our Bodies, Our Bikes the book is in the works. And it’s funding on Kickstarter right now. The image above is one of Katura Reynolds‘ preliminary sketches for the book cover. You might remember Katura from the space sharks on the cover of the first Bikes in Space, or from her compelling stories […]

@deisum @ellyblue https://t.co/LGFbmSakxZ pic.twitter.com/hoEuEOdLoN — Sam Ollinger (@ollingers) July 10, 2014 After clicking through to the original forum thread to confirm that John Forester’s comments about gender screencapped here were made in earnest, I have nothing to add. Thanks to the strong-stomached Sam Ollinger, director of San Diego advocacy group BikeSD, for going boldy into […]

Why we need a women's movement in bicycl...

Posted on

In the wake of the 3rd annual National Women’s Bicycling Forum in DC last week, there’s been some buzz online—does it make sense to have a separate women’s event? Does it help or does it segregate? Is the women’s forum the reason that the ensuing National Bike Summit was largely populated and led by white […]

Call for Submissions: Bicycling and repr...

Posted on

Ever since the original Our Bodies, Our Bikes zine came out, I knew that any future edition would need to talk about reproductive rights. In the past year, the connection has been very much on my mind, as the women’s bicycling movement has taken off in a positive direction at the same time as women’s […]

Bikenomics News Roundup

Posted on

Another week of Bikenomics news! I’ll try to do this every Wednesday—with the greater goals of getting back into the habit of blogging, and continuing to talk about stuff that has come up since I finished writing the book in July. (Side note: The book doesn’t come out til December 1st… but it’s been printed! […]

A Nobel for the one who predicted it all

In my late teens I got a job in a video store in Hamden, Connecticut and worked there on and off for five years, standing behind a computer and renting movies. It happened to be the only good video store in the region, so we had a lot of customers make the 4 mile drive […]

Bikenomics is coming soon...

Posted on

Well, it’s happening. Bicycles are changing U.S. culture, infrastructure, and economy at a remarkable rate. I’ve been on a mad dash for years to try to keep up with all the instances of amazing work, community, and change going on around bikes. Along the way, I’ve been writing about as much of it as I […]

Question Time: Help write my new Bicycli...

Posted on

Today my first post for Bicycling Magazine went up, titled “An Invitation to the Party,” in which I remind us all to make biking feel fun and special, like the party everyone wishes they were at, rather than the wholesome and serious duty participation the bike movement or even just a bike ride can at […]

Biking with Kids in the Snow

The whys and hows of bicycling Seattle’s hills in the snow with two young kids in tow.

A peek at the new Bikenomics book

Posted on

Everyday Bicycling may be barely out the gate, but I’ve already been hard at work for some time on the next book. The writing process has not been pretty (albeit it’s been easier the second time around). But the cover is freaking gorgeous. I can’t stop looking at it. I swear it makes the words […]
