The authors met and picked the brains of each bike-lover they met, in order to get a sense of what makes people bond with their bikes. The book includes full-page colour photographs of people with their bikes, accompanied by short descriptions about or direct quotes. In their words: The book that we are creating is not about a singular style of bike or type of cycling, but rather about all of us in a grand kinship of bicycles. We want to capture the strength, will power, and grit as well as the creativity, sense of humor, and whimsy of riding a bike. http://www.ilovemybikebook.com/about/
Brittain Sullivan and Matt Finkle are bike lovers who maintain a blog that is dedicated to the book. Last fall they traveled the country meeting and photographing strangers who all shared a love for their bikes. The authors aren't bike snobs, but bike enthusiasts.
