Bicycle Books and Journals

Learn how to change a flat tire, get inspiration for your next ride, and record your two-wheeled travels. There are lots of books on bicycling available. These are a few of my favorites.

Bike Watching: An Urban Explorer’s Journal I stumbled across this journal recently and was instantly hooked. The attractively illustrated pages include sections for recording notes and observations about everything from accessories to favorite rides. Author David Sparshott hopes to champion a new type of activity: bike watching. What’s not to love about that?
Bicycle Travel Journal Another illustrated journal, this one exudes elegance. Whether you’re setting out on a bicycle adventure or just biking to work, you can record it all in style.
Country Bike Journal (Blank) The cover illustration inspires, and the blank pages give you room to write, draw, and collect clippings from the road. Looking at this journal just makes me happy!
Just Ride: A Radically Practical Guide to Riding Your Bike Truly practical advice on how to ride your bike to get around — not just spend a lot of money on fancy stuff. Know someone who thinks they can’t ride? This just might change their mind.
Chainbreaker Bike Book If you have a bike, something is going to break or wear out eventually. Shelly and Ethan calmly and patiently provide no nonsense instructions on what to do and what not to do when working on your bicycle. Hand drawn illustrations clarify what exactly you’re supposed to do and lend the book real character. (And how can you not love a bicycle repair guide that is pink?!?)
Hop in the Saddle This is first thing going into my bag the next time I head to Portland. Beer. Bikes. Enough said. This Kickstarter project comes to life in November. Pre-order now and enjoy for Thanksgiving.
