Bikenomics: How Bicycling Can Save the Economy by Elly Blue
December 1, 2013
Update: Check out the Kickstarter project to fund Bikenomics and its upcoming east coast book (and food) tour.
Bikenomics provides a surprising and compelling new perspective on the way we get around and on how we spend our money, as families and as a society. The book starts with a look at the real transportation costs of families and individuals, and moves on to examine the current civic costs of our transportation system. The book tells the stories of people, businesses, organizations, and cities who are investing in two-wheeled transportation. The multifaceted North American bicycle movement is revealed, with its contradictions, challenges, successes, and visions.
Where to find Bikenomics
The best way to pre-order Bikenomics and support efforts to get out the word is to back the Kickstarter project running through November 1st.
You can order the book directly from the author ahead of its release and you’ll receive your copy as soon as the book is printed. A wholesale discount is automatically applied to orders of five or more.
This book is all new content being published for the first time. Previous incarnations of Bikenomics include a 44 page zine, published by the author, called Bikenomics: How Bicycling Will Save the Economy (If We Let It). The zine is available in print and as an e-book. Bikenomics was also the title of a series of articles by the author on environmental web magazine Grist.
Bikenomics has its own Facebook page, with a steady stream of topical news from around the web.
