Abstract:

"An instant classic when it was first published in 2013, Bikenomics has been revised and updated for its second edition, including an all-new introduction by the author. Elly Blue's Bikenomics provides a surprising and compelling new perspective on the way we get around, where we live, and how we spend our money. The book provides an unflinching look at the real costs of transportation and roads, for households and society at large, and shares the success stories of people, businesses, organizations, and cities that are investing in two-wheeled transportation. The multifaceted North American bicycle movement is revealed, with its contradictions, challenges, successes, and visions. Bikenomics does for transportation what The Omnivore's Dilemma did for food. Whether or not you ride a bicycle, reading this book will forever change the way you see the world around you."--

""An investigation of the economic implications of the growth of bicycle transportation in personal health and fitness interests, contemporary social movements, and urban planning practices"--Provided by publisher"--
