Summary "This book explores how bicycle infrastructure planning, once a fringe concern of progressive environmentalism, has become a key horizon of urban development. Using case studies from San Francisco, Oakland, Detroit, and Philadelphia, it shows how bicycling has been redefined as critical to the competitive 21st century city, reinscribing race and class inequalities in mobility in the process"-- Provided by publisher.
