Joyride: Pedaling toward a Healthier Planet by Mia Birk
Joyride: Pedaling toward a Healthier Planet

Little Mermaid, October 27, 2010

Mia Birk is an determined and incredibly accomplished woman. She's an inspiration to anyone interested in changing the minds, and architecture, of the world around them. This story of how she spearheaded the bicycle infrastructure in Portland, OR (and then shared the tools and wisdom across the nation) is fascinating, and a must have for anyone interested in urban planning.
