Art of Cycling: A Guide to Bicycling in 21st-Century America

Robert Hurst, Marla Streb

Author note: Marla Streb (Foreword)

The bicyclist is lower than assault from all instructions - the streets are ragged, the air is poison, and the drivers are offended. as though that weren't sufficient, the yank bike owner needs to hold the burden of heritage alongside on each ride.

After a quick heyday on the flip of the 20th century, American cyclists fell out of the social cognizance, changing into an afterthought whilst our towns have been deliberate and equipped. Cyclists this day are left to navigate, like rats in a sewer, via a troublesome and unsympathetic international that used to be no longer made for them. but, with the correct angle and somewhat wisdom, cyclists can thrive during this antagonistic environment.

Covering even more than simply driving a motorcycle in site visitors, writer Robert Hurst paints, in uncanny aspect, the demanding situations, techniques, and artwork of using a motorcycle on America's sleek streets and roadways. The artwork of Cycling dismantles the bicycling event and slides it below the microscope, piece by means of piece. Its fundamental drawback is defense, yet this e-book is going way past the standard guidance and how-to, diving in to the geographical regions of historical past, psychology, sociology, and economics.
