Bicycle Memoir Reveals Disturbing Group Behavior
By: Sue Knaup, Executive Director
This past week I crossed the finish line of a grueling ten-year journey. I can’t describe the relief I now enjoy with the publication of Bike Hunt, my memoir about the disturbing experience I had as director of the Thunderhead Alliance back in the early 2000s. It’s now available at booksellers worldwide or at www.OneStreet.org. Once you’ve had a chance to read it, let me know what you think.
You can read more about the book and leave comments in this blog post.
Come by the One Street Booth at the Interbike Trade Show
Once again, thanks to the generosity of Interbike, One Street will have a booth at the show. If you are planning to attend Interbike in Las Vegas September 19-22, please drop by our booth in the lobby, #L61. We’ll have copies of our books, including Bike Hunt. If you catch Sue at the booth, you can even get your copy signed! We’ll also have our Bike Shift Lever on display and lots of handouts for you to take with you. See you in Las Vegas!
