Joyride: Pedaling Toward a Healthier Planet

Joyride: Pedaling Toward a Healthier Planet

by Mia Birk

This is not merely a book about cycling; this is a story about creating change. Birk recounts how she, along with help from others, was able to transform Portland, Oregon into one of the most bike-friendly cities in the country. Through dialogue with politicians and bureaucrats, as well as working with ordinary citizens, Birk fought for sustainable transport in Portland and beyond. Joyride does not end with Birk's success in Portland; it follows her journey throughout the US as she continues to try and make cities safer and more environmentally conscious.
