Elly Blue

Elly Blue is a bike activist, blogger, and publisher extraordinaire based out of Portland, OR. I was already familiar with her blog/zine series Taking the Lane, which covers issues around equity in cycling, but recently got further acquainted with her work after picking up a copy of her latest book Bikenomics at Brookline Booksmith (it turns out this was a fluke, as the book hasn’t even been published yet. Nonetheless I am a beneficiary of this happy mistake). When I was visiting Portland last week, we met up for coffee to chat about the cycling scenes in our respective cities, her upcoming tour of the East Coast in Spring 2014, and just generally geek out about cycling. She was kind enough to let me get her photo as well. Elly owns a few bikes, but on this particular day she was riding a customized mountain bike outfitted with an Xtracycle cargo trailer.

Ride on, Elly!
