Product Description

Review

"Weiss is a Brooklyn-based cyclist and writer. His book is 240 pages of optimism hidden in snark, of hope cloaked in sarcasm, and it's full of sometimes scathing, always accurate cycling observations that occasionally border on genius....But for all its sardonic wit - and there is a lot of it - "The Enlightened Cyclist'' at its core is an honest look at a growing culture of bicycle commuters vying for a slice of the road in a car-dominated culture that still considers the bicycle an "alternative'' means of transportation. Mixed into the snark stew is a plea for commuters of all stripes - pedestrian, cyclist and driver - simply to get along." - The Unnamed Cyclist

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.

I was in stitches reading this book. It is extremely witty and insightful.
I have multiple pages marked to be re-read.
Buying the rest from the Bike Snob and in hardcopy. Keep up the good work!

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.

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

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...
