Announcing the first Bikeyface book, Bike There! Bike There is a 24 page mini-comic on how to bike around a city. The mini-comic is an introduction to transportation bicycling that was inspired by this original post for bike curious and new bicyclists (as well as any other bicyclists who love to laugh, bike, and share the lifestyle.)
The comic contains some illustrations that have appeared online as well as new ones. All illustrations have been updated and rendered in full color. And while there are many bicycling guides out there, Bike There is a little more humorous and a little less stuffy. You can get it here!
You’re probably tired of the question because of course you did.
When the bike question is not asked you know people assume you drove- especially the vocal few who fight bike lanes to preserve car parking for customers. So when you shop, put your groceries in this bag, new in the Bikeyface store:
“Yes I Biked” canvas bag in the Poppy color
The artwork is printed on to a BAGGU Duck Bag made with 100% 16 oz. recycled cotton canvas with durable taped seams and matte silver hardware. The bag is very, strong, high quality and great for carrying things or folded up out of sight. I selected this bag because I’ve been using one for shopping for several years now.
One of it’s great practical features are the short handles that make it easy to carry by hand:
“Yes I Biked” canvas bag in poppy color, now available in the Bikeyface store!
It also has an adjustable shoulder strap that can makes it easy to carry or wear as cross-body bag if your basket or panniers are already full. Inside you will find a pocket for your keys and phone. Also, both the bag & pocket snap shut.

So head on over to the store to check it out. Buy soon! There is limited stock on this.
New in the Bikeyface store are several color 8×10″ fine art prints. All are archival and printed on 100% cotton rag paper with a matte finish. Both the paper and the color quality has a lovely watercolor feel.
The images have been taken from past posts and been updated and colorized. I hope to add more images periodically.
Bicycling Band t-shirts are now available in the store. They are beautifully screen printed on 100% ring spun cotton steel blue t-shirts by Evan Webster Ink.
I’ve also added 2-Day Priority shipping for anyone on a holiday deadline. All orders ship out within 1-2 business days. Make sure to order by December 18th to guarantee it by December 24th! (For U.S. Orders.)
It’s always been easy to have a bikeyface on your bike. But now you can have a Bikeyface indoors. Introducing new Bikeyface posters, available in the new Bikeyface store:
This poster was inspired by reading about the World Happiness Report. The happiest nations are also the most bikey. Is that really that surprising?
Because sometimes it seems many people think these two cyclists are on the road. I don’t know about you, but I see many other bicyclists out there these days. I created this poster to open everyone’s mind and invite more people to grab a bike, no spandex/skinny jeans required.
Bikeyface Open Studio

Did you miss out on on getting a Bikeyface T-shirt during bike month? The last few are now available at Hub Bicycle Co. in Cambridge, MA. But get over there quickly- there is a very limited supply!
But even if you’re not able to I’m working on new shirts (and more.) Stay tuned!
