Making the case for adopting more sustainable modes of transportation, this reference explores the economic benefits of bicycling. It starts with an analysis of the real costs incurred by individuals and families in existing transportation systems and goes on to examine the current civic expenses of these systems. With critiques of modern society's deep-rooted attachment to car culture, this book tells the stories of people, businesses, organizations, and cities who are investing in two-wheeled transportation.

Thought provoking book! The author proposes that we shift from a culture that worships the car to one that supports the use of the bicycle and in the process save our economy. As expected very US focused but an informative read.
