NPR recently featured a story on their website about how bike sales are outpacing car sales in Europe. And that is AWESOME.
I disagree with the final lines of the article tying economic strength to car sales, saying that the US has ‘fared much better’ because our car sales are higher. Looks like the author should read more about Bikenomics to see how bike sales and usage can be considered a measure of economic strength and stability.
Speaking of which, there are only 3 days left in Elly Blue’s Kickstarter campaign for her new book Bikenomics and she is just shy of her $4000 goal. Check out her page and consider supporting the book!
