Cultural Studies and the renagades of bike culture

UC Davis Cultural Studies Professor Sarah McCullough, PhD, discusses the renegades of bike culture in a couple of previous American bike booms.

From its earliest days, the development of bicycling has been dominated by adrenaline junkies out for a thrill, with a good dose of counter-cultural influence to balance the blend.

To learn more about the crew of people who shuttled up Mount Tamalpais on their Schwinn cruisers, watch “Klunkerz,” a documentary about the early days of Marin County mountain biking.
