Officially, Independence Day is a federal holiday in the United States in commemoration of nationhood or, more specifically, the ratification of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.

Unofficially, "the Fourth" is a day off work to go for a bike ride, gather with loved ones, grill up some food, watch the fireworks and, in recent years, save on summer cycling essentials.

Anne-Marije Rook
North American Editor

Cycling Weekly's North American Editor, Anne-Marije Rook is old school. She holds a degree in journalism and started out as a newspaper reporter — in print! She can even be seen bringing a pen and notepad to the press conference.

Originally from The Netherlands, she grew up a bike commuter and didn't find bike racing until her early twenties when living in Seattle, Washington. Strengthened by the many miles spent darting around Seattle's hilly streets on a steel single speed, Rook's progression in the sport was a quick one. As she competed at the elite level, her journalism career followed, and soon she became a full-time cycling journalist. She's now been a cycling journalist for 11 years.
