Description

Join writer and bicycling activist Elly Blue on her tour for 

Bikenomics: How Bicylcing Will Save the Economy (If We Let It)    

 

Bikenomics provides a surprising and compelling new perspective on the way we get around and on how we spend our money, as families and as a society. Starting with a look at the real transportation costs of families and individuals, then moving on to examine the current civic costs of our transportation system, Bikenomics tells the stories of people, businesses, organizations, and cities who are investing in two-wheeled transportation. The multifaceted North American bicycle movement is revealed, with its contradictions, challenges, successes, and visions.

Elly Blue's work has appeared in Grist, Bicycling Magazine, BikePortland, The Magazine, Momentum, and Reclaim among other publications. She has been featured on Democracy Now!, in the Oregonian, and on Oregon Public Broadcasting. She blogs about bicycling and empowerment; check her out here!

Hey--can somebody please fix the typo here? The book is called Bikenomics, not Bikemomics.

I'll be interviewing Elly, John Stewart-style, at this event.
