Joyride tells the inspiring story of Mia Birk's twenty-year crusade to integrate bicycling into daily life. With only table scraps of funding, Birk led a revolution that helped grow Portland, Oregon, into the country's premier cycling city. She then hit the road, teaching communities how to incorporate cycling into their civic DNA to make their towns healthier, safer, and more livable. Through a panoply of hilarious and poignant stories, Birk takes readers on a rollercoaster journey of global and local discovery, while bringing into sharp focus some of the planet's most pressing and hotly debated energy and transportation issues, policies, shortcomings, and solutions. Her funny, touching, and instructive Joyride offers hope and experienced how-to advice to anyone interested in changing our world for the better—one pedal stroke at a time.

Review:

A witty, poignant memoir from one of the most important figures in America's urban bicycling renaissance. --Jeff Mapes: Author of Pedaling Revolution

Anyone interested in changing their life or community for the better is going to love Joyride. It tells the story of how we transformed Portland into a livable, thriving cycling mecca and Mia Birk is the right person to tell it. --Earl Blumenauer, Member of Congress

Mia Birk helped shape remarkable transportation changes in Portland that have made it the #1 cycling city in the country. Joyride is a great chronicle of the vision and tenacity that it takes to transform a city's mindset and infrastructure, and is a great handbook for those of us who want to bring change to our own cities. --Angela Hunt, Dallas, Texas City Council
