Issue 48

MOM48 Cover (medium)

Momentum’s photo issue captures stills from the big bike events, happenings and trends that defined North America cycling culture in 2010. These images mark how far the lifestyle cycling movement has come and where it might be headed in the second decade of the 21st Century. We also take a peek at San Diego, CA – a semi-arid city that’s taking some novel approaches to increase its cycling mode share. Don’t miss our rain gear and folding bikes section, along with Gleanings, Mitey Miss, Arts and Culture, our look at ’bent cycling culture and much more!
