When promoted and supported as a transportation choice, the bicycle has the power to improve daily life. In City Cycling, a collection of the latest research on cycling for transportation, experts unravel how cities can learn from past successes and incorporate the benefits of bicycles into future planning. City Cycling illustrates how cities both big and small can improve overall cycling conditions, integrate bicycles with public transit, and encourage more women and children to use bicycles. Although it’s intended to be an academic text, I found the writing accessible, with handy charts for future reference. City Cycling is a must-read for city planners, students, politicians, advocates and others who want to help promote and improve bicycle travel in their city.
