BikeTexas is delighted that our friends and past Shifting Gears and TTAT speakers, Ralph Buehler and John Pucher, have released their latest book, Cycling for Sustainable Cities.
Robin Stallings, BikeTexas’ Executive Director, is a contributor for the chapter “Cycling Advocacy in Europe, North America, and Australia.” Robin says, “It was an honor for BikeTexas to be included in this group of great bike organizations. This chapter highlights work by advocacy groups at the local, state/provincial, and national levels from many different countries.”
This book is great for advocates, planners, engineers, elected officials, and anyone else interested in providing great places to bike and walk. Cycling for Sustainable Cities is a mini-TTAT conference in book form.

Cycling is the most sustainable means of urban travel, practical for most short- and medium-distance trips—commuting to and from work and school, shopping, visiting friends—as well as for recreation and exercise. Cycling promotes physical, social, and mental health, helps reduce car use, enhances mobility and independence, and is economical for both public and personal budgets. Cycling should be made feasible for everyone and not limited to especially fit, daring, well-trained cyclists riding expensive bicycles. Cycling for Sustainable Cities shows how to make city cycling safe, practical, and convenient for all ages and abilities.
