Announcing the first Bikeyface book, Bike ThereBike There is a 24 page mini-comic on how to bike around a city. The mini-comic is an introduction to transportation bicycling that was inspired by this original post for bike curious and new bicyclists (as well as any other bicyclists who love to laugh, bike, and share the lifestyle.)

The comic contains some illustrations that have appeared online as well as new ones. All illustrations have been updated and rendered in full color. And while there are many bicycling guides out there, Bike There is a little more humorous and a little less stuffy. You can get it here!

BikeyFace On WGBH!

Written by Boston Biker on Feb 06

An excellent piece on winter riding.  I see Bekka about every three days on my way to work.  Its a nice part of my day to see the same cyclists on a daily/semi-daily basis.

She shows just how easy it is to get to work, even in the winter!

Hey That Was Me!

Written by Boston Biker on Feb 26

I am pretty sure I can now die happy, I made BikeyFace. I do tend to ride past her (we have opposite direction commutes), and I do recall a rather “whaaa” look on her face when I was all bundled up in a scarf. If you are reading this BikeyFace, mystery solved.

Read the rest of this great comic here.
