While cruising for last-minute gift ideas, I came upon none that topped the 2011 National Geographic book Wheels of Change: How Women Rode the Bicycle to Freedom (With a Few Flat Tires Along the Way).
It appeals to the feminists for whom I shop. To the enthusiasts who love bike culture and teach their children how to use the word “peleton” before “potty.” And to everyone who is a friend of Alupa Creative, since all of you will delight in the following quote:
“The bicycle is the devil’s advance agent morally and physically in thousands of instances.”
