Kurzbeschreibung

In this collection of short stories about bicycles, a grocery store worker finds more than he bargained for when he wangles his way into a gated community with a perfect hill for climbing…an ancient Constantinoplean invents a two-wheeled contraption to impress a girl…a bicycle reflects on its life while chained outside in New York City…an eerie rider exacts gruesome revenge on automobile drivers…

These and more in eight stories of gears, pedals, and the need to RIDE.

NY VELOCITY says:

"The theme of “bike” is an obvious thread that runs throughout these nine short stories, but more importantly, identity is at the heart of many of these…perhaps most obviously in the chilling “I’m Bob Deerman.” I found the contribution by the editor of the book, Keith Snyder, to be especially poignant and his story, as well as the shop talk in Christopher Ryan’s, are the most seamless examples of bicycles serving the story effortlessly. There is a nice bit of cathartic revenge fantasizing done by Simon Wood. Kent Peterson’s contribution is an unabashed love letter to biking…and Taliah Lampert’s illustrations are wonderful…"
—William Carey, NY VELOCITY

BICYCLING MAGAZINE says:

"This is one of those books that was put together for love, outside of the mainstream publishing scene…original illustrations by Taliah Lempert appear on the cover and with each story. My favorite, I think: Red Dot, by Barbara Jaye Wilson."
—Bill Strickland, BICYCLING

5.0 von 5 Sternen Literature for cyclists! 14. Januar 2012
Von Nancy Schmidt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Though I've never been a fan of short stories, I read the Kindle version of this book because it was fiction about bicycles. And, you know what? It was a fun read! I especially enjoyed exposure to several different authors and their varied styles.

The artwork in Ride, by Talia Lempert, is exceptional. Visit her art at: bicyclepaintings.com

For the cover art alone I would want to possess a hard copy of Ride. Fortunately, the content measures up. It's a book I will be proud to give to cycling friends.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Bicycle fiction? Who knew? 22. Dezember 2011
Von Hudson Valley Rando - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
The words bicycle and fiction are not two I normally associate with each other. While I read plenty of stories on bicycling, none of them really fall into the fiction category, unless of course, you count the occasional baldface lie cyclists pass off as truth in ride reports. I am a big fan of Tim Krabbe's classic The Rider, though, which I would heartily recommend to anyone interested in understanding bicycle racing. All this is to say, that while I love cycling and I love reading, I am fairly new to the genre of cycling short fiction of which this is a collection.

In all, I found Ride to be a bit uneven. Some stories, like Kent Peterson's "Bob's Bike Shop," Keith Snyder's "Night Ride" and Barbara Jaye Wilson's "Red Dot" are quite engaging, while others seem not fully developed. Regardless, Ride is an ebook well worth owning; a bargain at twice the price. Download it today and enjoy! Apparently there's a Ride 2 in the works as indicated by the call for manuscripts at the end of this collection. Who knows, maybe your story will be selected for the next edition.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Like listening to the stories from your LBS graybeards 23. Dezember 2011
Von K. Ulrich - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
To me, bicycling is about sheer enjoyment. After a long commute, it's not my legs, back, or ass that are sore but my face. I don't smile often during the day and those muscles have atrophied from years of neglect. Similarly, I expected all of the stories in RIDE to have the same uplifting and positive undertones. This assumption turned out to be incorrect. It took reading through nearly two-thirds of the book before "death" wasn't on the authors' minds.

This wasn't a bad thing - it led to some great story telling. Reading through these stories is like hanging out in your LBS listening to the anecdotes of the seasoned graybeards. You can't quite decipher if the tales are personal, happened to a friend of a friend, or just totally made up. But it doesn't really matter, they're still worth hearing.

I'm still relatively young and far from an optimist. It's possible that years of stolen saddles and wheels, being driven off the road by motorist, and broken promises by local government to install bike infrastructure have turned these authors into cynics. Maybe I just don't get it yet. But, I hope RIDE 2 will take a more whimsical approach to its story telling (Red Dot was my hands down favorite) and highlight the joy of riding.

Short stories. Not so much bike focussed. But most are interesting short reads. Just so-so as far as recommending to others. A little like watching the soaps, which I don't do.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Not what I was looking for. 19. September 2013

The book was not the kind of bike book I like to read, but I bought it, so I read it. Others may really like it sorry.
