Reading While Riding: What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

Excellent weather has temporarily interfered with the blog, as I've been biking to work instead of taking the subway. Although I have yet to see anyone reading a book on his or her bicycle, I imagine it's only a matter of time—especially with handy products like this Performance Book Caddy on the market!

"Boy, that last chapter sure ended on a cliff-hanger."


  1. I used to try to read and ride my bike. It was really interesting because our driveway was lined by a curb. I wasn't super successful. CAN walk and read at the same time. Despite my dad's dire predictions, I've not tried to read and drive...often...

  2. Yeah, why is it so darn tricky to draw a bicycle? Each one I’ve ever attempted turned into some sort of M.C. Escher blueprint that’s both hauntingly possible and frustratingly implausible.

  3. Glad you aren't reading and biking, nor seeing others do it. I however, often see people driving and reading (newspapers - not maps) and my teenage driving companion reports to me religiously on those seen driving and texting (the joys of an SUV). Scary. So in the interest of keeping this blog alive I would kindly ask that you pay attention to the cars!!
