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

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

It just came out in 2009.

I just got it, just started it.
I'm staying in for the weekend to read it.
I know that I'll plow right through it, like my cyclocross flying through a wide puddle at the bottom of a steep downhill.

It includes sections on Amsterdam, NYC, Portland, Davis, bike culture, health, kids, politics...

I know that Jeff Mapes will be reading from his new book at Powell's sometime soon.

reviewed in the Oregonian today. Best quote from the book: "It's like golfing to work".

I'll be attending to pick up a copy at Powell's Thursday evening and say hello to Jeff. Thanks for the heads-up.

Lightbulb Date and time info

Last week, I talked to Jeff's sister, and was told about this event, so I posted the Date and time info in the events forum.
