      Very nice collection of essays/stories. Very representative of a broad range of cycling interests - from political explorations to internal meditations of hills (going both up and down!). The Mark Twain piece is a wry hoot. Violet Paget's is one of the most beautiful pieces of cycle writings I've encountered. It's about getting lost, taking things slow, enjoying solitude on 2 wheels. All the best things.

      A strong collection of essays and short stories all having to do with two-wheeled goodness. A very good first issues, look forward to grabbing Issue 2.
