'People all around the world have combined their passion for cycling with a way they believe can make the world a better place. Whether the bike is a hobby, workplace or lifeline it represents the freedom to be oneself and to give that little bit more to others.
We are proud to present the 2011 Worldwide Cycling Atlas, a collection of some of the most interesting bicycle related initiatives from around the world.
We know how inspirational the bicycle can be and share the same passion and vision with the community of riders worldwide.'

'On Bicycles is a great little book of short essays about Bike culture, gear and hints and tips from a wide cast of cycling writers.
With subjects as diverse as safety, how to park your bike, choosing a style, cargo biking, E-bikes , hand made frames , choosing a bag , route planning, health, economics, attitude, bike culture and sub-cultures and political activism it has a little something for everyone.
It’s easy to dip in to and find something new and interesting no matter what kind of cyclist you are (or want to be) and will give you ideas on parts of bike culture you may not know so much about yet. It’s a well illustrated and nicely printed little book for the daily commuter and the first time rider alike.'
Amy Walker is the cofounder of Momentum magazine, in Vancouver; an informative, beautiful and very succesful urban cycling magazine.

'The Holstee Manifesto is a call to action to live a life full of intention, creativity, passion, and community.
The LifeCycle Film came about as a desire to bring the energy and passion behind the Manifesto to life through something we love--biking. As we seek to live mindful lifestyles that leave a positive impact on the people and world around us, biking has become a passion that is much more than a transportation alternative. It is a way of fully experiencing the city we love and all of its details.
This Film is a celebration. It is a celebration of gatherings, of diversity, of life, and of the beauty of shared experience.'
