A former professional cyclist, James Hamilton Hibbard studied philosophy at The University of California, Santa Cruz and DePaul University. He has received grants and been selected for workshops by PEN America and Tin House. Also a screenwriter, James' first feature film is currently being developed. He lives with his wife and son in Northern California.
Professional bike racing has never lent itself to deep thinkers.
Winning is a cruel and ruthless business where the best are taught
to keep their head down, arse-up, and brain in neutral. So it's
fair to say that James Hibbard was an exception, and that The Art
of Cycling is an exceptional read
