It starts withan analysis of the real costs incurred by individuals and families in exist-ing transportation systems and goes on to examine the current civicexpenses of these systems.With critiques of modern society’s deep-rootedattachment to car culture, this book tells the stories of people, businesses,organizations, and cities who are investing in two-wheeled transporta-tion. Offering a fresh and compelling perspective on how people get fromplace to place, this book reveals the multifaceted North American bicyclemovement with its contradictions, challenges, successes, and visions forthe future.

Excerpt:I was a bicycle activist for several years, organizing events and rallying around campaigns.This did not paythe bills, so I became a reporter, writing editorials about bicycle transportation issues for several online newssources. I began to investigate the sparse data and research studies available about cycling, and this stopped me short. I had always, I realized, subconsciously seenmy activism and passion for two-wheeled transportationas a fringe cause, as a way to learn skills that I could later apply to real issues once I’d grown up a bit more.What I found instead was validation beyond what I’d ever imagined.Environmental destruction? Bikes can help stem the tide.Health crisis? Bikes all the way.Distracted driving and the epidemic level of traffic deaths and injuries? Absolutely, bikes.Mental health crisis, depression, misery in general? Bikes.Social isolation and community disintegration? Bikes.Food crisis? Bikes can even help with that.Energy crisis? Bikes take it head-on, not just in replacing motorized trips, but in creating the conditions for more energy efficient places.Economic crisis? Now this is the place where bicycling takes home the biggest trophies.
