In his new book, BikeSnobNYC reaches the final frontier of cycling: riding with the family.
As his choice to take to the road with his toddler son in tow is met with bewilderment
and disapproval from onlookers and the occasional motorist, he ponders why it’s such a
taboo. And what does it really mean to be a bike-friendly country? Seeking answers, he
heads from the U.S. to London, Amsterdam, Gothenburg, and San Vito dei Normanni in
search of an alternative. With humorous anecdotes and his trademark biting wit and
wisdom, BikeSnobNYC takes us on his most personal narrative journey yet, and ultimately
shines a light on the growing pains that exist in any culture that asks smartphoneobsessed
text-happy pedestrians, the two-wheeled, and the four-wheeled to share the road.
BikeSnobNYC (a.k.a. Eben Weiss) is the blogger behind bikesnobnyc.blogspot.com, a massively popular cycling blog. He also writes a regular column in Bicycling magazine. He lives in New York City.
