In recent years, the bicycle has seen a boom in popularity, both as a recreational vehicle and as a way to commute to work or school. But even some metropolitan areas in the United States are far from bicycle friendly.

Two Spoke, an online forum dedicated to all things cycling, has become a way for some cyclists to help each other navigate the automobile-dominated world, providing a place to discuss everything from cycling apparel to bicycle-rights legislation. Two Spoke site administrator Travis Haynes recently spoke with MOTHER EARTH NEWS via e-mail about the forum, as well as the bicycle’s place in the United States as a legitimate form of transportation.

How did Two Spoke get started, and what are the site’s goals? 

Two Spoke was started May 8, 2009, in response to a need for a cycling website that was owned and operated by cyclists. The goal is to establish an online cycling forum that works as both a resource and a community that covers all facets of cycling and cycling life.

How has the site grown since then? What kinds of things are people using Two Spoke for now? 

Two Spoke has grown in leaps and bounds by establishing a genuine and friendly environment that facilitates the flow of information from those with the knowledge to those in need of it, everything from designing and maintaining your cycle to advocacy issues. Two Spoke provides an inclusive community of cyclists looking to connect with other cyclists.
