An excellent article about bicycle commuting

I just discovered this article by Tom VanderbiltRage Against Your Machine in Outside Magazine online.
Mr Vanderbilt profiles a doctor in the New York area with an amazing commute, and around this story the author builds an excellent investigation of many aspects of bicycle commuting today, and he explores the controversies that recent discussions about bicycle traffic infrastructure have aroused.

The same author has written the book "Traffic: Why We Drive the Way We Do (and what it says about us)"  I read this book a while back and found some very interesting discussion about traffic planning and modern transportation.

If you are interested in traffic and automobile culture, these will be good reading.
