Last year we linked up with Elly Blue to help support her Taking the Lane zine. Elly has been writing about bicycle transportation since 2006. Her work has appeared in the Guardian, Bicycling, Grist, Bitch, BikePortland, Momentum, and elsewhere. Her first book, Everyday Bicycling, came out in December, 2012. Her book, Bikenomics: How Bicycling Can Save the Economy, came out in December, 2013.
Taking the Lane offers Elly’s unique perspective looking at both cycling and feminism. I just got through issue 12, titled simply Religion. Elly and the rest of the writers published in the zine do not shy away from topics that are typically kept in the shadows. I highly recommend picking up this issue and gaining, perhaps, a different perspective.
