Words To Ride By Thoughts On Bicycling
Freedom, speed, possibilty, meditative space and a means to get around---the pleasures that come from riding a bike are deep, and even the casual cyclist can feel the connection that has propelled us forward as inventors, travellers and thinkers. Gathered here are the entertaining, inspiring, and philosophical thoughts about cycling from writers (and riders) including Diane Ackerman, Albert Einstein, Susan B. Anthony, Mark Twain, Vladimir Nabokov, Carl Sagan, Iris Murdoch, and many more, thoughtfully and playfully paired with black and white photos and illustrations depicting a history of people and bikes.
