    1. I really enjoyed this book as a reference manual for how to increase cycling in the city, how other countries integrate cycling, and as a quick reference for statistics The authors get bonus points from me for mentioning the book Momo by Michael Ende a childhood favorite of mine The title is a bit misleading as the contents are less on how to cycle in the city and rather an introduction into making city cycling better The authors make a great case for cycling which I m sure will be quoted by man [...]

    2. This was a thorough, methodical, and straightforward summary of the research that exists for cycling as transportation It devotes a chapter to all the key issues safety, infrastructure, health benefits, bikesharing, integrating with transit, etc and provides steps forward with reasoning for each The chapter on cycling infrastructure was especially enlightening, and I m glad I had it recommended to me.I will be referencing this book in the future.

    3. I read this partly for work and partly for background reading for my research class this semester It s full of great stuff It s full of research into cycling, and not much about the joys or the how tos of regular bike riding, so if you re looking for either of those things this probably isn t the book for you It has good information to take to your local city officials, though, in case they re wondering why all these cyclists are turning up in their city all of a sudden.
