Sociological book on cycling

book cover

My book (published by the University of Nebraska Press, February 2020) examines five different ways in which cycling can assemble ‘the good city.’ It’s based on five years of mobile ethnography of cycling in the city, focused on Canada (and a few detours to Detroit, Seattle and Finland). At the intersections of urban sociology, cultural geography, city planning and political philosophy, the book imagines cycling as its own mobility system, one uniquely situated to the complicated moral and ecological demands of urban life in the twenty-first century.

My book was inspired by On Justification by Boltanski and Thévenot. Here is an alternative cover that mimics theirs, while hinting at the unequal power relations between commons goods.
