5.0 out of 5 stars An enlightening read, whether you ride a bike or not!
A fascinating (if personal) insight into the joys and perils of cycling in NYC. Probably one of the most balanced cycling books I've read. It should be read by the most ant-cyclist petrol-heads and absolutist cycle campaigners - and just about everyone in between.

Highly recommended

2.0 out of 5 stars The other half finds this a bit self indulgent...
I bought this for my boyfriend after he really enjoyed the first book. He said it it scraping the barrel for subject matter and is overly self indulgent, which is a tad disappointing! Sorry!

This review is from: The Enlightened Cyclist: Finding the Path to Two-wheeled Transcendence (Hardcover)
Fortunately this was not a rehash of the first book, it is more fluid and feels more mature. I am looking forward to reading the third instalment

4.0 out of 5 stars Common sense, 11 April 2013

This review is from: The Enlightened Cyclist: Finding the Path to Two-wheeled Transcendence (Hardcover)
Cyclists - Read this book to get educated so you can defend yourself against the onslaught of salesmen telling you what you 'need' in order to use a bicycle. Let common sense prevail and don't allow yourself to be brainwashed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cyclists as seen by a cyclist, 22 Jan 2013

A very entertaining review of cycling, cyclists and their environment by a cyclist
Who admits he also has feet of clay, uses other types of vehicles and his attitude
Changes accordingly. This book is as funny as his Bike Snob.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than his first book, 26 Sep 2012
By 
DLW (Bristol, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Enlightened Cyclist: Finding the Path to Two-wheeled Transcendence (Hardcover)
This book looks at cycle commuting from the angle of it being a lifestyle choice and even a weird cult (hey, but isn't that how many non-cyclists see it?). Funny, and with some very important points made. Not sure we have the same problems with inline skaters in the UK that they apparently have in NYC, though...
