Cycling Cities: The Global Experience is a research and publication project. It covers 100 years of cycling policy and practice around the world in 50 cities in 25 countries–and growing. Cycling Cities is an invaluable resource for the growing global community of policymakers, social groups, students, and teachers. We are pleased to announce the Cycling Cities: The African Experience project!
Why did some capitals and business centers become real cycling cities and others not? Cycling Cities traces how policymakers, engineers, cyclists, or community groups have made a difference since the early twentieth century. All publications are richly illustrated with photos; tables; graphs; maps; and info graphics.
Cycling Cities has gained traction in the news, including The Guardian. Reviews have appeared in Dutch, English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese among others. The city of Teheran has translated the book in Farsi.
