The first 2-Hip Meet the Street BMX contest that Ron Wilkerson held in Southern California on 4/30/88 is a significant event that Mike Daily builds upon in Moon Babes of Bicycle City. The book starts on Friday, 10/11/19, with Rodderick Moon and Mick O’Grady pedaling Rodd’s bikecar replica of the ’76 Chrysler Cordoba that Ron W had at the contest.

Rodd and Mick are pedaling the bikecar from Cavern City Air Terminal in Carlsbad, New Mexico, to Bicycle City, where cars have been outlawed and the terrain is a world like no other. Rodd Moon and his wife Chatauqua run a bike shop there called Moon Babes Retire Bikes.

Rodd’s prototype “2020 BikeCardoba” is primer grey in the opening scenes. It’s prepped to be duct taped, spray painted, and thrashed as an obstacle on Saturday, 10/12/19.

Sunday, 10/13/19, is a Full Moon.

Novel.

The First Printing of only 100 copies was a pocket-size paperback that readers received by Friday, 10/11/19–the exact date of the novel’s opening scenes. MBoBC Bike Club Members received their copies (and limited edition merch extras including poster prints of the 2-Hip Cordoba, stacks of stickers, and much more) direct from the author in time to read the book in “real time” if they chose to do so.

A modern day monument to BMX Freestyle culture and innovative fiction, this “Second Printing Forever” (4/3/20) of Mike Daily’s new novel Moon Babes of Bicycle City is a remastered edition that features a Foreword by Ron W, an Afterword by Matt D’Angelo, and a timeline tracking reader-participation milestones.

RAD meets Breaking Bad in Bicycle City, New Mexico.

Cover Design, Illustrations, and Book Layout by Nathan Powell.

5.5″ x 8.5″, 200 pages.

“Moon Babes of Bicycle City, the new book by Mike Daily is being delivered to mailboxes worldwide!”–Steve Brothers, BMX Society

“It’s a novel. A few hours’ read. What’s it like? Imagine hanging out with your crew and meeting other crews. Road trip. New town–locals’ rules. All the stuff you say is a mash-up of puns, one-ups, and references to obscure bike parts or magazine captions. Total linguistic freestyle. Tricking every surface and interaction. That’s what it’s like to read this.”–Scuffington Post

“As an independent project this is executed at a high level (consistent with all of Daily’s work). It’s written with style, edited with integrity and designed with intent. If you want to get a taste of what BMX was like in the fictionalized sun baked bicycle-powered old school, this is a feast. I think what makes it cool and shelf-worthy is its complete originality.”–Mark Lewman

“Nowhere. And I mean nowhere! Will you ever hear anything like this. A story, using BMX word play, strung together in a completely surreal yet weirdly familiar way. At times poetic, at others it’s just flat out freaky. This had me smiling one second then in awe of word play the next, all the while being completely immersed in this strange tale.”–James White

“This book is dope. You should cop it.”–Bobby Loveless
