    DescriptionIn Bike Snob, blogger BikeSnobNYC offered an overview of cycling and the various 'bike cultures.' This next book will focus on an experience that cyclists the world over are familiar with: commuting. With his trademark snark, humor and begrudging enthusiasm, BikeSnobNYC will take readers through the trials and triumphs (but mostly trials) of getting there by bike. Along the way, he offers up everything from the history of our commutes to the deadly sins of commuting to tactics for dealing with cars, pedestrians, and your fellow two-wheelers.

    Review quote
    "Weiss is a Brooklyn-based cyclist and writer. His book is 240 pages of optimism hidden in snark, of hope cloaked in sarcasm, and it's full of sometimes scathing, always accurate cycling observations that occasionally border on genius....But for all its sardonic wit - and there is a lot of it - "The Enlightened Cyclist'' at its core is an honest look at a growing culture of bicycle commuters vying for a slice of the road in a car-dominated culture that still considers the bicycle an "alternative'' means of transportation. Mixed into the snark stew is a plea for commuters of all stripes - pedestrian, cyclist and driver - simply to get along." - The Unnamed Cyclist
