Art of Cycling: Staying Safe on Urban Streets (2nd Edition)

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 adequate, the yankee bike owner needs to hold the load of heritage alongside on each ride.

After a quick heyday on the flip of the 20 th 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 difficult and unsympathetic global that was once no longer made for them. but, with the right kind perspective and slightly wisdom, cyclists can thrive during this adversarial environment.

Covering even more than simply driving a motorbike in site visitors, writer Robert Hurst paints, in uncanny element, the demanding situations, techniques, and paintings of using a motorbike on America's glossy streets and roadways. The paintings of Cycling dismantles the bicycling event and slides it less than the microscope, piece by way of piece. Its fundamental situation is protection, yet this booklet is going well past the standard assistance and how-to, diving in to the nation-states of historical past, psychology, sociology, and economics.
