About the Ride
Bike Dr is happy to host the start of the ride and lead it too! We'll round up some mobile sound and fun art bikes and off we go along the seawall. Possibly we'll head along the Dunsmuir and Burrard bike lanes followed by more seawall, then the Cypress bike route and finishing at the Broadway and Granville Chapters.
Meet up at 137 W Broadway Bike Doctor at 5:45 and ride at 6:15pm. 45 min ride to Chapters.
About the Book
From best-selling author BikeSnobNYC comes the next epistle on the world according to cycling’s most irreverent, opinionated, and incisively amusing voice. The Enlightened Cyclist considers the place of the cyclist in our modern world. The joys of commuting by bike attract scores of converts every year. But, as cyclists fill the road, they also encounter their share of frustrations—careless drivers, wide-flung car doors, zoned-out pedestrians, and overly aggressive race-to-the-next-stoplight fellow cyclists. In this follow-up to the best-selling Bike Snob, BikeSnobNYC takes on the trials and triumphs of getting there by bike with humor and enthusiasm, dolling out much-needed advice and ultimately asking the question: If we become better commuters, will that make us better people?
