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.

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.

A spanish-language translation of the zine is now available.
