Greg Borzo is a local author who has a passion for bicycling and story-telling. He’s put the two together for his latest book, Where to Bike: Chicago. It looks like a good way to find a route for a bike ride while at the same time reading about the history of Chicago bicycling. His website for the book is here, and an extensive interview with Greg can be found on John Greenfield’s website: Vote With Your Feet.
Also, Greg has “created a photo exhibit with up to 25 photos, using photos that are from the book, showing a cross-section of biking around the city and suburbs. That photo exhibit is available for free to any library, bookstore, bike shop or civic organization that would like to put it on display for two to four months.”
A great book to get one up to speed on the state of bicycling in the U.S. is Pedaling Revolution: How Cyclists are Changing American Cities by Jeff Mapes. It’s a good read for anyone curious about bicyclists affecting city structure, including some history, cultural and social aspects, examples of different cities, infrastructure, kids riding to school, and political happenings at the local, state and federal levels.
There’s an excellent review of Pedaling Revolution on BikePortland.org.
