Overview

Pedaling Revolution: How Cyclists Are Changing American Cities by Jeff Mapes

"A growing number of Americans, mounted on their bicycles like some new kind of urban cowboy, are mixing it up with swift, two-ton motor vehicles as they create a new society on the streets. They're finding physical fitness, low-cost transportation, environmental purity-and, still all too often, Wind West risks of sudden death or injury." -from the Introduction

I started Pedaling Revolution after reading another book about bicycling and I'm really liking this so far. The writing is informative but not overly dense, and the author's journalism background lends a great deal to his story telling abilities. The sections on Portland strike me as the best ones in book, which is hardly surprising since the author lives in Oregon....and because there's been a huge amount of biking happening in Portland, Eugene and Corvallis. I'm looking forward to finishing the book and I'd recommend it to people who are already interested in bicycling.
