Salt Lake City, Utah – It's probably not hard to guess that a blogger who calls himself BikeSnobNYC thinks that the bicycle is a "Truly Great Invention." In his book, Eben Weiss explains that a bike provides it all: freedom, speed, well-being and even that sense of victory that comes with finishing a marathon. Thursday, Weiss joins Jennifer Napier-Pearce for a look at the bicycle from its earliest days to the wide (and sometimes bizarre) world of people who use it today.
