Sarah Rebolloso McCullough works as the Associate Director at the Center for the Humanities at UC San Diego and completed my Ph.D. at UC Davis in Cultural Studies with a project on the origins and growth of mountain biking.
This project began with a simple question: Why do people like to bike? This apparently simple inquiry led me to study the bicycling boom of the 1970s and its most important legacy–mountain biking. Along with studying the history and culture of mountain biking, I am also examining the growth of bicycling in urban transportation, the expansion of do-it-yourself bike repair spaces, and the rise of various bicycling “lifestyle” subcultures.
