A thoughtful, multiperspective take on the sociopolitical effects of bicycling. Bicycling has the radical potential of equalizing our transportation system, creating more equitable opportunities from the personal to the societal, and being a vehicle for protest and social justice. But that isn't how it always works. The contributors to this book--in the Taking the Lane series--tackle of the potentials and realities and unintended consequences of trying to create a better world using human-powered transportation.
