Building the cycling city: the Dutch blueprint for urban vitality

By Bruntlett, Melissa

Publishing Date: [2018]

Classification: 300

Call Number: 388.3472 BRU

In car-clogged urban areas across the world, the bicycle is enjoying a second life as a legitimate form of transportation. City officials are rediscovering it as a multi-pronged solution to acute, 21st-century problems, including affordability, obesity, congestion, climate change, inequity, and social isolation. As the world's foremost cycling nation, the Netherlands is the only country where the number of bikes exceeds the number of people, primarily because the Dutch have built a cycling culture accessible to everyone, regardless of age, ability, or economic means. This book describes the success of the Netherlands and examines the triumphs and challenges of the Dutch while also presenting stories of North American cities already implementing lessons from across the Atlantic. Discover how Dutch cities inspired Atlanta to look at its transit-bike connection in a new way and showed Seattle how to teach its residents to realize the freedom of biking.
