Continuing our discussion of bicycles and history, this week the Bike Nerds welcome back friend of the podcast, Anthony Siracusa. In addition to serving as the president of BikeWalk TN, Anthony is also pursuing a doctorate in history from Vanderbilt University studying the growth, proliferation, and misconceptions of non-violent protest during the U.S. Civil Rights movement. In 2009/10 Anthony traveled the world exploring great bicycling cities searching for answers on how to create bicycling cultures, and through a historical framework discovered that the answers were historically rooted and more complicated than originally guessed.
