The book covers topics such as the history of bike advocacy, folding bikes, car free streets, bicycle commuting, the bike-craft boom, bike parking and many more.

The book is edited by Amy Walker. Amy Walker is a lifetime cyclist who started riding to school at the age of 16 and just never stopped as a means of transportation and pleasure. She lives in Vancouver, British Columbia and is the co-founder of Momentum Magazine.

This is a great travel book. The chapters of On Bicycles are each an interesting read by themselves. If you don't have time to sit down and read a large chunk of the book, you can read a chapter or two and come back to the book at another time. All the chapters of the book are informational and motivating. 

Reading this book just makes you want to go out and ride your bike. It reveals the fun and positive impact cycling has on our communities and the world. This is a good book for anyone to read, regardless if the reader is interested in transportaion cycling or not.
