Pressestimmen

"It's a call to action, pointing out multiple ways that dollars currently spent in the service of the car can better better spent to serve people. She makes her case clearly and both passion and data inform the book. [...] This small book is an inspiration to step away from the automobile and to bicycle forward into a quieter, brighter, better world." --Kent Peterson, Kent's Bike Blog

"Blue's approach is down-to-earth, practical, and kind." --Sarah Goodyear, "The Atlantic Cities"

"Blue's book is rational, fully footnoted--and, in the main, persuasive." --Ben Schiller, "Fast Company"

"Blue's book helped me better frame my own reasons for riding, and got me thinking a lot about what a more bike-centered future could look like. It's a future, I realized, I'd really like to see." --Dick VanderHart, "Portland Mercury"

"Blue isn't talking about 'fixing' the economy we have right now. Instead, she's talking about looking to a different future." --A.K. Streeter, treehugger.com

HASH(0x9493e318) von 5 Sternen This is a great book for your friend who rides their bike anywhere ... 30. November 2014
Von Jeffro - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a great book for your friend who rides their bike anywhere for any reason. They may have a very strong opinion about why everyone should ride bikes or not, but chances are they don't know the extent of the economics behind a bicycle transportation sector and its effect on the economy in terms of businesses and their income, city operations costs, transportation infrastructure costs, and of course emissions into the atmosphere.

This book is written in plain language and is short and easy to read. Just a pleasure and an easy gift for that person you can't think anything to get them. This is a no brainer...wonderful fun to read book with interest on every page.

HASH(0x944dc7f8) von 5 Sternen Definitely worth the read 16. März 2015
Von Luke H. Klipp - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Elly makes a clear and cogent case for increased investment in bicycle infrastructure. The only drawback was that at times she seemed more interested in glossing over what might be inconvenient truths that undermined her case than in just acknowledging that sometimes not everything fits the narrative. Still, I thoroughly enjoyed the read and would recommend it to anyone interested in better understanding how a multi-modal infrastructure can support a more robust economy.

HASH(0x94538bac) von 5 Sternen Makes the Case for Traveling at a Human Speed 12. Mai 2015
Von Rich Leon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Bikenomics makes the case that using bicycles for local transportation can: save our health, save our communities, save our kids, save our cities, save our suburbs, save our towns, save our food supply, and even save our lives! The author says the book is largely about people who are able to "think outside the ruts our society and our daily lives are in, to envision a better big picture and show the rest of us the way to get there." Bicycles will play a major role in this creative social change. Why? Because, unlike planes, trains, and automobiles, "they move us through our lives and landscapes, quickly but still at a human speed, where we can look around and recognize ourselves and each other." The author believes in the power of ordinary people to change lives and social norms in extraordinary ways. "Bicycles give us the power to transform our individual lives and make real, satisfying, measurable changes in our communities without waiting for anyone or anything else to show us the way."

As an advocate myself of well-being on two wheels (BikeCultureRising.com), I need no convincing of the many virtues of getting more people out of their cars and onto bikes. Mindfulness and well-being are on the rise, and bicycles have a central role to play in a cleaner, slower, and wiser world.

HASH(0x9454ab34) von 5 Sternen A god named automobile. 25. November 2014
Von papafrita - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I take my hat to Ms.Blue. She couldn't nail it better. Such a vision and info.I think all politicians here in Orlando, FL. should read this book. Significative changes and attitudes are still to be seen from drivers here in Florida where car is still the god of many. Bold exposure
on this subject, I think I'll read it twice. My respects.

Most of the tools needed for the advocate are provided br Blue in this book. Her facts and notes help arm US for the continued push for cycling infrastructure and equity.
