BICYCLE TRANSPORTATION. A HANDBOOK FOR CYCLING TRANSPORTATION ENGINEERS, SECOND EDITION

This new edition of the handbook for transportation policy makers and bicycling advocates has been completely rewritten to reflect changes of the last decade. It includes new chapters on European bikeway engineering, city planning, integration with mass transit and long-distance carriers, "traffic calming," and the art of encouraging private-sector support for bicycle commuting. The author, who believes that riding a bicycle along streets with traffic is safer than pedaling on restricted bike paths and bike lanes, argues the case for cyclists' rights with zeal and with statistics based on experience, traffic studies, and roadway design standards. Over the nearly two decades since this book first arrived, he has brought about many changes in the national standards for highway, bikeways, bicycles, and traffic laws.
