Bike culture is exploding in cities like Portland, OR, New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Montreal, and Vancouver, BC. Whether people are riding folding bikes to the commuter train, slipping through traffic on streamlined single speeds, or carrying children and groceries on their cargo bikes, bicycles are making urban life more dynamic and enjoyable — simply better.

On Bicycles features 33 writers including locals Terry Lowe, Lars Goeller, Todd Litman, Stephen Rees, Carmen Mills, Ulrike Rodrigues (aka Mitey Miss), Wendell Challenger, Chris Keam, Finley Fagan, Lori Kessler, Ron Richings, Eric Doherty, Sarah Ripplinger, David Hay, Bonnie Fenton Amy Wlaker and Denise Wrathall.

The local amazing Carmen Mills wrote a piece for On Bicycles called “Notes from a Bicycle Bodhisattva—may all beings be liberated,” about how bikes and the buddha are all about the pursuit of FREEDOM.
