It's here! The gorgeous Velocipede Races, with its silvery and hollywood cerise cover and majorly badass story of a forbidden love for bike racing.

What we're reading! 
2015 kept us all busy! Our next blog post, containing our annual report, will show you how and why. But somehow along the margins we found chances to read books and articles, watch movies and tv shows, listen to music and podcasts, and consume other assorted media to inspire us and keep us going. Here's a recap for the last month bleeding into the last year.

I interviewed the author of our newest bike book, and she has a ton of interesting things to say, including some sharp analysis of gender, New Orleans, and the role of bikes during / after Katrina. 
Emilie Bahr's new book Urban Revolutions: A Woman's Guide to Two-Wheeled Transportation just turned up from the printer, to the delight of everyone at the office. So much hard work and love went into this book. Emilie fully deployed her chops as a journalist and urban planner, her hard-won knowledge of urban transportation bicycling, and her love and knowledge of her home city of New Orleans (we're pretty sure this is the only book out there with...

My newest Kickstarter project is a Microcosm extravaganza! In honor of our 20th anniversary, we have a new book coming out that tells the company's story (and could also be read as a business case study, an asperger's memoir, a punk history, or a how-to-grow-up coming of age tale), plus major deals on a bunch of our best older books that have spent too long in our warehouse. Back it! Win! Read forever!
