Our Bodies, Our Bikes

by Elly Blue, Katura Reynolds, Emily June Street and April Streeter
£10.99   paperback  Microcosm Publishing (2015)

Our Bodies, Our Bikes by Elly Blue, Katura Reynolds, Emily June Street and April Streeter An homage to the classic Our Bodies, Ourselves, this encyclopedic, crowd-sourced compilation of essays, resources, information, and advice about the intersection of gender and bicycling covers a lot of groundóbold meditations on body parts, stories about recovery from illness and injury, biking to the birth center, and loud and proud declarations of physical and emotional freedom.
 
Includes accounts of bicycling while pregnant, tips about how to ride fast or what to wear when you need to look professional, stories of cycling with kids, biking with various experiences of gender, age, ability, sexuality, menstruation, chronic illness, an extensive and illuminating article about the vulva and contact with your bike saddle, thoughts about abortion and reproductive rights, and much more.
 
There's something for everyone in here, and something to expand everyone's idea of what's for them.
