BUILDING THE CYCLING CITY The Dutch Blueprint for Urban Vitality

by | Read by Christina Delaine

Contemporary Culture • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

The authors start off by telling listeners their family has given up car ownership, getting around largely by bike or on foot. Their audio tour of the bicycle-friendly Netherlands isn't about personal experience; it concentrates more on policy. Narrator Christina Delaine tells listeners about Dutch cities' quality of life with enthusiasm and admiration. Sometimes, the topics are intriguing: cycle superhighways, car-free Sundays, and e-bikes, for example. Still, policy discussions run into rough terrain at times. The work doesn't cover just the Netherlands; cities in the United States, Canada, and Europe that have become more bike friendly are also discussed. Trends such as the cargo bike culture in Portland, Oregon, are considered as well. The audiobook provides lots of ideas for makers and shapers of decisions to contemplate.
