An excellent read is a book by Barbra Savage called “Miles from Nowhere: A Round the World Bicycle Adventure.” I couldn’t put it down. Barbra Savage was killed in a bicycle accident shortly before she was able to publish the book. Her husband published it for her.
Another great read is, “The Immortal Class” by Travis Culley. It’s not a book just about bicycle messengers, but about living a life with a bicycle as your own source of travel, and co-existing with the automobile. Another terrific read.
Another book, written by a local author, and a book of short stories called, “Metal Cowboy,” by Joe kurmaskie. It’s a book of short stories written around his adventures on a bicycle.
