Joyride tells the story of pioneering transportation leader Mia Birk's 20-year crusade to integrate bicycling into daily life. With a scrap of funding, Mia led a revolution that grew Portland, Oregon into the #1 American cycling city. Mia then hits the road, helping make communities across the nation - even her hometown, Dallas, Texas - more human, healthy, safe, and livable. While many books today extol the pain of our world's problems, Mia's funny, touching "Joyride" is the antidote, offering hope to any and everyone interested in changing our world for the better, one pedal stroke at a time.
