Bike Literacy

I'm thinking about checking out one of these cycling related books. Has anyone read any of them? Or can anyone recommend one that they loved that discusses cycling infrastructure, history, etc?

I think I'm most interested in Pedal Power and Pedaling Revolution; we aren't even close to some European cities in the number of trips taken by bicycle but I am interested in how U.S. cycle commuting has evolved (and continues to evolve) over time.

Bicycle: The History

Pedaling Revolution: How Cyclists Are Changing American Cities

The Cyclist's Manifesto: The Case for Riding Two Wheels Instead of Four

The Practical Cyclist: Bicycling For Real People

Pedal Power: The Quiet Rise of the Bicycle in American Public Life

  1. I really enjoyed Pedaling Revolution -- I felt like I learned a lot and gained some good arguments for when people hint that I'm a bad mom for biking with my child...
