Bike Snob NYC (a.k.a. Eben Weiss) started the Bike Snob NYC blog in 2007. A former bike messenger and frequent bicycle commuter and racer, he both celebrated and skewered the world of cycling with an acerbic wit that soon made him one of the most popular bloggers in cycling. In 2010, he published his first book, Bike Snob, which was followed by The Enlightened Cyclist in 2012 and Bike Snob Abroad in 2013. He is a columnist for Bicycling, the world's leading cycling magazine, and he has been published and profiled in numerous publications, including the New York Times and Outside. He lives in New York City with his wife and son.
