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 volume of Taking the Lane zine tackle of the potentials and realities and unintended consequences of trying to create a better world using human-powered transportation.

Comments & Reviews


Each article was clear and engaging. Since I bike for transportation and care about social justice, this zine/small book felt comforting and inclusive to read. Recommended!



"Gorgeous in design, a pleasure to hold, almost retro, Bikequity is reminiscent of those old photocopied zines that circulated pre-internet..."



"I’m honored to have been included with some excellent voices in Elly Blue’s 14th installment of her feminist bicycling zine Taking The Lane."
