Inspired by the immortal words of Sir Mix-A-Lot: we love to bike and we cannot lie! We're super excited to kick off Bike Month (May 30 – June 30).
While we're aware of the health and environmental benefits of cycling, Yvonne Bambrick, the founding executive director of the Toronto Cyclists Union (now Cycle Toronto) and author of The Urban Cycling Survival Guide, shares other advantages — as well as some of the struggles — of riding your bike in the city. Check out her presentation at TEDxTheAnnexWomen: Momentum at the University Club of Toronto last May:
From May 31 to June 30, use the discount code BIKEMONTH to get 30% off Yvonne Bambrick's book The Urban Cycling Survival Guide, an accessible, straight-forward pocket guide that helps cyclists new to the urban environment negotiate all the challenges, obstacles, and rules — spoken and unspoken — that come with sharing the roads.
Many ECWers, including Yvonne's editor and cyclist extraodinaire, Jen Knoch, are commuting by trusty metal steed this spring/summer.
