Book Report: Bike Snob Abroad
I’m a big fan of the BikeSnob books, which is a great series about cycling, written by famed bike blogger, Eben Weiss, who calls himself Bike Snob NYC. What I really enjoy about his books is that they are smart and funny observations about life – related to cycling. His new book, Bike Snob Abroad is equally as great.
In this book, Eben tells his stories about traveling, both alone and with his family, in search for a cycling paradise. Covering Portland, New York (where he lives), London, Amsterdam, Gothenburg and San Vito del Normanni, he shares his observations. Although all these cities are passionate about cycling – each bike culture is very different.
As with his other books, the stories are well-written and the chapters are short – great for those of us will little time to read. I relate to his sense of humor and ol’school pop culture references so well, that I’ve even found myself sharing some of his witty comments with my wife.
If you get a chance, pick up a copy of this, or any of the other BikeSnob books.
