About the Author:

Elly Blue is an author and activist who lives in Portland, Oregon. She writes about the economic and equity cases for bicycle transportation.

Review:

"A great book for the budding cyclist with know-it-all aspirations and little time to commit. And it's something you can grow with as a cyclist, with helpful reminders that what’s right for one is not necessarily right for all." —www.grist.org

"Bicycling is one thing each of us can do that will have an immediate, positive impact on the environment. This book is an excellent place to start."  —Matthew Modine, actor and founder, Bicycle for a Day

"Bicycling was key to simplifying my life and this book will help you make your life better too. It's like the friend you wish you had who can patiently show you all the details that make bicycling fun rather than frustrating."  —Tammy Strobel, author, Simply Car-free and Smalltopia

"When it comes to bicycling, knowledge is power. This book gives you the knowledge you need to get around under your own steam. It's a real life guide for real people with places to go and things to do."  —Mia Birk, author, Joyride: Pedaling Toward a Healthier Planet

"Blue takes cycling and makes it digestible to cyclists and would-be's in a friendly, laid-back tone. Absent of any authoritarian voice, this is the book I wish I had years ago." —www.UrbanVelo.org

"A super relevant and straightforward city biking handbook that I would recommend gifting to someone who's just getting started biking." —www.BlogTown.PortlandMercury.com

"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." —www.TheAtlanticCities.com
