Author J.P. Partland first swung his leg over a bicycle when he was three. Little did he know it would become a lifelong obsession. An avid cyclist, his work has appeared on numerous Web sites and countless cycling-specific and general interest magazines. In addition to his work as a journalist, he has also performed stand-up comedy, and written plays, teleplays, and short stories. He is the author of Mountain Bike Madness, Tour Fever, and Where To Bike New York City. He still finds there is never enough time to ride and never enough room for bikes. Mr. Partland lives in New York City. He posts his musings at Just Riding Along.
Photographer Tony Donaldson began his photography career explosively. Less than nine months after shooting his first photograph, he moved 2,000 miles to work on staff at one of his favorite magazines. Although he’s had no formal training, his photography has since appeared in the likes of ESPN the Magazine and Sports Illustrated for Kids, and in print advertisements for several top shoe, clothing, and bicycle companies. An avid mountain biker, BMXer, and skateboarder, Donaldson also works in the realm of digital video-making, editing, and postproduction. He lives in the Los Angeles area, and his work can be viewed at www.tdphoto.com.
