Jeff Mapes interviewed on KUOW's Weekday

Jeff Mapes just published a new book called "Pedaling Revolution: How Cyclists Are Changing American Cities". He was interviewed on KUOW's (Seattle Public Radio) weekday. I haven't read the book yet - it's on hold at the Library, but the interview was interesting. Free podcast available here:

I've been told by Jeff that I'm in the book, but I haven't looked yet

I met Jeff, and got a copy of his book at the national Bike Summit in DC a few weeks ago. Great person, and the book is really good. It's a nice, concise history of the cycling advocacy movement in America, and a good comparison of our problems with the way similar issues have been confronted in other countries.

Well worth the 20 bucks, imho...
