The cover to Jeff Mapes' "Pedaling Revolution: How Cyclists Are Changing American Cities"

Jeff Mapes, a regular contributor at The Oregonian, took a year off from reporting work and wrote an excellent book on the growing grassroots efforts to remake America’s roads and cities into more bike-friendly places.

Join us as we host our Jeff Mapes on the evening of Saturday, May 30, 2009 at 7 p.m. at the Flying Pigeon LA bike shop. Mapes will give a reading from his book, “Pedaling Revolution: How Cyclists Are Changing American Cities” (ISBN13: 9780870714191) and will have copies for sale.

Refreshments will be served, and a good (and enlightening) time is to be had by all! You can pick up a copy of “Pedaling Revolution” online through the Oregon State University Press – or come by the Flying Pigeon LA bike shop and buy one in person.

From a recent review by one of our favorite magazines:

“This is a useful and very informative book on the current state of transportation cycling in the USA. It begins by examining the recent history of advocacy and activism, detours through the cycling success stories of Amsterdam and Copenhagen, then settles in for a long examination of American cities, the people who are making cycling succeed there, and how they are doing it.”

– Terry Lowe, “Book Review – Pedaling Revolution“, Momentum Magazine No. 39

If you can’t make it to the event, we’ll try and record the talk on our digicam and upload it to Youtube just as soon as we can!
