Fellow Freeman Transport Troop member Chris Piascik has posted news of I Love My Bike (by Matt Finkle and Brittain Sullivan) due from Chronicle this Spring.

Cycling is about joy. Sure, it takes willpower, strength, and grit, but at its core, being on a bike is all about rejoicing in the greatest transportational invention in history. I Love My Bike is a photographic celebration of the grand kinship of bicycles, a bond shared by millions of people around the world. This distinctive and affordable coffee table book for cyclists collects the best of the stories, photographs, and bicycles encountered by the authors during numerous cross-country photo-journaling trips. Readers will meet longtime messengers and hardcore roadies, casual commuters and weekend day-trippers, tattoo artists and skateboarders, bike builders and first-time owners—all of them in love with their two-wheeled contraptions. With gorgeous full-color photos on every spread, I Love My Bike delivers the trifecta of awesome for any cyclist: cool people, cool photos, and really, really cool bikes.

Matt Finkle is a photographer and cycling enthusiast. He lives and rides in Boston, Massachusetts.

Brittain Sullivan is a creative writer and bicycle collector. She lives in Boston, Massachusetts.

I am excited. You should also be excited.

Some of the covers Piascik designed that didn’t make the cut after the jump.
