Cycle Space shows you how the bicycle can save the city

From New York to Singapore, from Copenhagen to Sydney, from Chicago to Amsterdam, and from São Paolo to Budapest, there is a groundswell of cyclists taking to the streets of major cities. Whether death-defying bike messengers, hipsters with a taste for cycle chic, or commuters simply cycling to work, cycling is viewed as more than just an alternative. It’s practical. It’s cool. It’s green. With portraits of major cities and their cycling cultures, Cycle Space is the first book to view the city through the lens of the bicycle, and offer a new ways of designing better cities.

Cycle space is where architecture and urban design can begin to optimise conditions for cycling, and take inspiration from the aesthetics and ethics of cycling as well. It is where cities can begin reducing emissions, commute times, ill-health and sprawl. In Cycle Space, architecture professor and cycling nut Steven Fleming argues that understanding why people are choosing bikes is key for discovering the full potential of the bicycle as a transformative force in the design of our cities.
