David Byrne reviews the new bible for the bicycle revolution

PEDALING REVOLUTION: How Cyclists Are Changing American Cities
By Jeff Mapes. 228 pp. Oregon State University Press. Paper, $19.95


Full disclosure: I’ve ridden a bike around New York as my principal means of transport for 30 years, so I’m inclined to sympathize with the idea that a cycling revolution is upon us, and that it’s a good thing. Like Jeff Mapes, the author of “Pedaling Revolution: How Cyclists Are Changing American Cities,” I’ve watched the streets fill over the years with more and varied bike riders. It’s no longer just me, some food delivery guys and a posse of reckless messengers. Far from it.
