Bike Cleveland Book Club

We know the cold winter months in Cleveland can be difficult, especially for people like us who depend on our bicycles for joy, friendship, and sanity. This winter, Bike Cleveland will be hosting a monthly book club to keep our minds busy & to build our community! Our book club will be great for people who want to deepen their knowledge of bicycle & pedestrian advocacy.

In November, we will read Streetfight: Handbook for an Urban Revolution by Janette Sadik-Khan.

More about the book:

​As New York City’s transportation commissioner, Janette Sadik-Khan managed the seemingly impossible and transformed the streets of one of the world’s greatest, toughest cities into dynamic spaces safe for pedestrians and bikers. Her approach was dramatic and effective: Simply painting a part of the street to make it into a plaza or bus lane not only made the street safer, but it also lessened congestion and increased foot traffic, which improved the bottom line of businesses. Real-life experience confirmed that if you know how to read the street, you can make it function better by not totally reconstructing it but by reallocating the space that’s already there.​





The book club will meet on November 15th at 6pm the Bike Cleveland offices (3000 Bridge Avenue, Cleveland 44113) for discussion & drinks! Register here.
