Erika Lindemann and Howard Booth


Pedal On


PEDAL PROSE: Erika Lindemann and Howard Booth are the tag team of bicycling enthusiasts who write Pedal On, a biweekly online column full of friendly tips, encouragement, and information for novice cyclists, elite cyclists, and everybody in between. Topics they have covered range from how to do things — how to lock your bike, repair your bike, choose a bike that fits — to happenings in the bicycle community. Booth regularly reminds people to share the road, while Lindemann’s recurring theme is having fun, but they are both full of anecdotes and expertise, and delightful to read. Catch up with them at independent.com/cycling.
