Bike Snob Abroad

Eben Weiss, the snarky cyclist blogger and columnist more widely known as BikeSnobNYC, faces the challenges of fatherhood and biking abroad in his travelogue Bike Snob Abroad: Strange Customs, Incredible Fiets, and the Quest for Cycling Paradise (Chronicle Books, $16.95). His witty observations on American bicycle culture will keep readers pedaling through the pages. Hop on for treks through Brooklyn, New York; Portland, Oregon; Amsterdam, Netherlands; and Copenhagen, Denmark—just don't forget your helmet.
