About The Author
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 biker, his work
has appeared on numerous web sites and in more than fifty cycling-specific and general
interest magazines, including Velo News, Asphalt, Bicycling, Bicyclist, Bike,
Women's Sports and Fitness, Fitness, Hooked on the Outdoors and Outside.
In addition to his work as a journalist, he has also performed stand-up comedy,
and written plays, teleplays, and short stories. He still finds there is never enough
time to ride and never enough room for bikes. Mr. Partland lives in New York City.
