Taking the Lane #1: Sharing the Road with Boys

by Elly Blue Author

In this 2010 zine, Elly shares her thoughts and stories about being a woman on a bike in Portland, Oregon. Having been a cyclist for several years, Elly is well-versed in the law and her rights as a cyclist. This doesn't, however, stop men from trying to prove her wrong. Thankfully, Elly doesn't back down. Instead, she is one of many women leading the way towards more bike-friendly (and hopefully less misogynistic) cities. Elly's zine doesn't just talk about problems, she also shares solutions for individuals and organizations. Taking the Lane is very well-written and designed. This is a great read that will leave you impatiently waiting for the next issue. Oh, as a bonus, there is some incredible clip art.
