Bicycling advocates envision a future in which bikes are a widespread daily form of transportation, but this reality is still far away. Will we ever witness a true "bike boom" in cities? What can we learn from past successes and failures to make cycling safer, easier, and more accessible? In Bike Boom, journalist Carlton Reid uses history to shine a spotlight on the present and demonstrates how bicycling has the potential to grow even further, if the right measures are put in place by the politicians and planners of today and tomorrow. He explores the benefits and challenges of cycling, the roles of infrastructure and advocacy, and what we can learn from cities that have successfully supported and encouraged bike booms. In this entertaining and thought-provoking book, Reid sets out to discover what we can learn from the history of bike "booms."

The core of John Forester's concept of Effective Cycling is that bicyclists fare best when they act, and are treated in return, as drivers of vehicles, with the same rights and responsibilities that motorists have.In this new edition of his classic introductory work, Forester reasserts this idea in terms of practice and education as well as theory while also addressing--among much else--the two major forces that have shaped bicycling since the early 1980s: the proliferation of high-quality equipment and the seriously insufficient progress on the social, political, and psychological fronts.The book is filled with details, strategies, and tips that will be useful both to occasional cyclists and to those who enjoy cycling as a way of life--all drawn from the author's many years of experience as a cyclist, a Cycling Transportation Engineer, and the founder of the Effective Cycling Program.

Kaum eine Woche vergeht, in der nicht ein Artikel zum Thema Elektromobilität in einer Tageszeitung erscheint. Unabhängig davon ist das altbewährte Fahrrad als nachhaltiges Verkehrsmittel moderner und beliebter denn je. Die Synthese beider Trends - das „E-Bike“ - ist in aller Munde. Diese Aktualität schafft Raum für ein innovatives, interdisziplinäres und transdisziplinäres Forschungsfeld, auf dessen Ergebnisse viele Wirtschaftszweige mit Spannung warten. Im Freizeit- und Tourismusmarkt ist das E-Bike eine besondere Innovation, welche schon mehrfach Anwendung findet. Bisher fehlt jedoch eine Studie, welche die Potenziale und Erfolgsfaktoren des Elektrofahrrads im Hinblick auf unterschiedliche Landschaftstypen beleuchtet. Vor diesem Hintergrund konnte die vorliegende Studie mit der Motivation erstellt werden, die Thematik erstmals aus raumwissenschaftlicher Sicht zu hinterfragen und Erkenntnisse für die Tourismusbranche zu gewinnen.

Inventors, explorers, athletes, advocates, scientists, and mystics of the kinesthetic realm speak on the subject of sport, on the environment, creative pursuits, religion, neuroscience, fear, flow, mortality, and discovery - one who walked on the moon, marginal characters who helped to make mountain biking mainstream, a B.A.S.E. jumper, a boulderer, Gidget, and those many others who would harness the power of play for oftentimes transformative ends. Interviews and essays combine to create a portrait of risk and reward through physical feats and through interactions with the natural world. The time period centers itself on the second half of the 20th century into the 21st. The people, places, ideas, and anecdotes in question are of historical and cultural relevance to the world of adventure, athleticism, and the outdoors. Who invented the bungee jump? What are the limits of human endurance, of speed up a mountain, or survival at sea? How did it all begin? What motivates those who go in search of the unknown? When will it all end, and what's the point of it anyway? "It's the spirit of innovation and anti-conformity and doing things differently," says one Alexander Rufus-Isaacs, a founding member of England's Dangerous Sports Club (an experiment in weird adventures and alternative sporting events). "A manifestation of joy," "a Don Quixote adventure," "the most exhilarating moment that you'll ever feel in your life," and "a great step into the unknown," according to others.

The United States differs from other developed nations in the extent to which its national bicycle transportation policy relies on the use of unmodified roadways, with cyclists obeying the same traffic regulations as motor vehicles. This policy--known as "vehicular cycling"--evolved between 1969, when the "10-speed boom" saw a sharp increase in adult bicycling, and 1991, when the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials adopted an official policy that on-road bikeways were not desirable. This policy resulted from a growing realization by highway engineers and experienced club cyclists that they had parallel interests: the cyclists preferred to ride on highways, because most bikeways were not designed for high speeds and pack riding; and the highway engineers did not want to divert funding from roadways to construct bikeways. Using contemporary magazine articles, government reports, and archival material from industry lobbying groups and national cycling organizations, this book tells the story of how America became a nation of bicyclists without bikeways.

On rails-to-trails bike paths, city streets, and winding country roads, the bicycle seems ubiquitous in the Badger State. Yet there’s a complex and fascinating history behind the popularity of biking in Wisconsin—one that until now has never been told. Meticulously researched through periodicals and newspapers, Wheel Fever traces the story of Wisconsin’s first “bicycling boom,” from the velocipede craze of 1869 through the “wheel fever” of the 1890s. It was during this crucial period that the sport Wisconsinites know and adore first took shape. From the start it has been defined by a rich and often impassioned debate over who should be allowed to ride, where they could ride, and even what they could wear. Many early riders embraced the bicycle as a solution to the age-old problem of how to get from here to there in the quickest and easiest way possible. Yet for every supporter of the “poor man’s horse,” there were others who wanted to keep the rights and privileges of riding to an elite set. Women, the working class, and people of color were often left behind as middle- and upper-class white men benefitted from the “masculine” sport and all-male clubs and racing events began to shape the scene. Even as bikes became more affordable and accessible, a culture defined by inequality helped create bicycling in its own image, and these limitations continue to haunt the sport today. Wheel Fever is about the origins of bicycling in Wisconsin and why those origins still matter, but it is also about our continuing fascination with all things bicycle. From “boneshakers” to high-wheels, standard models to racing bikes, tandems to tricycles, the book is lushly illustrated with never-before-seen images of early cycling, and the people who rode them: bloomer girls, bicycle jockeys, young urbanites, and unionized workers. Laying the foundations for a much-beloved recreation, Wheel Fever challenges us to imagine anew the democratic possibilities that animated cycling’s early debates.

Eine geniale Maschine wird 200: Am 12. Juni 1817 startete der Freiherr Drais von Sauerbronn die erste Ausfahrt mit der selbstkonstruierten »einspurigen Laufmaschine«, der nach ihm benannten »Draisine«. Das Fahrrad war erfunden, sah allerdings noch etwas anders aus als heute. Bis zum Kettenantrieb mit Pedalen dauerte es nämlich eine Weile, aber dann kam die Sache richtig in Schwung – und der hat seither nicht nachgelassen. Heute erlebt das Fahrrad seinen neuesten Boom im Zeichen von vernetzter und nachhaltiger Mobilität. Johann-Günther König erzählt diese Erfolgsgeschichte mit ihren Legenden aus der Sicht der radelnden Zeitzeugen. Ausführlich kommen zumal die vielfältigen politischen, wirtschaftlichen und kulturellen Aspekte zur Sprache. Nützliche Informationen über die Funktionsweise des Rads, das Zubehör und Erste Hilfe bei Pannen und Problemen runden das Buch ab.
