Written as a stylistic blend of memoir, rollicking stories, and lessons, Birk shows that bicycling can be a significant and incredibly positive means of transportation and an economic powerhouse for businesses who are realizing the health, safety, economic, environmental, and livability benefits of integrating bicycling and walking into daily life.
