Renegades of Bike Culture | Fig. 1 - YouTube
"Today's hipsters and their fixie bikes are not the first to embody the too-cool-for-school persona of the cyclist. In the 1970's, counter-culture types in the mountains north of San Francisco took to careening down Mount Tamalpais. They were riding for adventure, for exploration, and as a way to interact with the landscape; they were not riding for exercise. Sarah McCullough, whose PhD dissertation at UC Davis explores the history of mountain biking, explains how this group of renegade cylists invented the sport."
