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.


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.

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

  1. THIS is……….SLLLLAAAAAAAAMMMMMED , TIMES 7 , James ! First by reading it nailing a hitchhiker , a move which has haunted me since finally kinda half ass learning to do em , in December of 2000 , yeah…..I know …..SUPER late with learning them , haha . Theyre STILL very sketchy when I do one, every now and then , TOTAL zambonys / hula hoop jerks ! Watching you just bust one , reading this book has motivated me to try and dial them PROPER , once and for all ! Second , after luckily winning the books online video line / promotion contest , couple months back ……Daily sent me a rad care package , including the book ! That combo I filmed for the contest was a real pain in the arse , haha…..almost going through mommas garage door on the wheelchair to pedal E -squeak part of the line, haha……and let me say THIS book is BEYOND spectacular ! The word play , in the know quirks , details , and nuances of the entire plot of the book , HOW the story unfolds , the characters , destinations they travel , their back to back bmx banter , just EVERY single detail in the story is crazy rad ! The first page will IMMEDIATLY draw you in to continue to read the book . Clever , well thought out , very ORIGINAL writing going on here . I strongly suggest EVERYONE order a copy of this gem !! Not to give to much away …….but one of the few of MANY tongue and cheek references starting the story is a bmxer chatting about three sisters …..Ukai , Suzue , and Araya ……those who have LIVED the bmx lifestyle well over 20 plus years will definitely get THAT reference to the NAMES of the three sisters ! BUT …..this book is NOT just for the bmx crowd ……the way the plot unfolds , the narrative flavor and story line as a whole will interest and keep ANY reader who just loves a good book to read………they will be intrigued , and very entertained as theyre going through EVERY paragraph of this remarkable book as well !! MOON BABES OF BICYCLE CITY , a MUST read created by one of the O.G. Plywood Hood BMX crew members , representing York Pennsylvania …..MIKE DAILY !! If THATS not enough of a legitimate reason warranting SUPERB clout to read this book …..then I don’t know WHAT is ……..Thanks , Mike / James this book for my 46 birthday present and this video clip of the hitchhiker FLAT out rule ….pun INTENDED , bruvs !!
