Emilie Bahr is a journalist-turned-urban planner and the author of the book Urban Revolutions: A Woman's Guide to Two-Wheeled Transportation, released by Microcosm Publishing in 2016. It has been described as "part field guide, part why-to manifesto" and it was inspired by her own experience rediscovering the joys of life on two wheels. Emilie has written for a variety of publications on a wide range of subjects, though her favorites relate to walking, biking and cities and how people relate to them. She lives in New Orleans with her husband Beaux and four-month-old son, Hudson.
