Oregonian staff writer Jeff Mapes will present his new book, just published by Oregon State University Press: Pedaling Revolution: How Cyclists are Changing American Cities. This book explores the growing urban bike culture that is changing the look and feel of cities across North America. Mapes traces the growth of bicycle advocacy and explores issues such as the environmental and safety aspects of short urban bike trips. Chapters set in Chicago and Portland show how bicycling has beome a political act, and how cyclists are claiming their share of the urban streetscape. For anyone interested in transportation, urban planning, sustainability, public health, or bicycling, this is a fascinating look at a burgeoning phenomenon. Hope you can join us!
