Issue 2 of the Bicycle Reader

Somewhat later than planned, the second issue of the Bicycle Reader is out, and available for Kindle, Kobo and other ebook readers. It can be read on Apple and Android tablets and phones using the free Kindle app.

Apart from the excellent writing and the breadth of subject, the best thing about the Bicycle Reader? It costs less than a cup of coffee, just £1.53 in the UK and $2.31 in the USA and elsewhere.

    As I don’t want the bother, and to subscribe to these tax-dodging corporations, why can’t the reader just bepublished on here as well? Surely not difficult.

    Chronicles the aftermath of Bike&Chain: The Ultimate Guide to Bicycling Culture (1000 pp, 2008), now out of print. Any of its 56 chapters is an essay worth reprinting, although some are over 50 pages. It’s velorutionary literary art about everything cycling writing otherwise isn’t.
