This week the Bike Nerds are joined by Carlton Reid, Newcastle, UK-based executive editor of BikeBiz.com, and author of “Roads Were Not Built for Cars” (2015) and the upcoming “Bike Boom: The Unexpected Resurgence of Cycling” (2017). Sara and Kyle chat with Carlton about the European biking boom of the 1930’s and the American boom of the early 1970’s. The historical circumstances that led to the popularity in cycling during those times provide valuable lessons for today’s advocates and city planners working to make biking a normalized activity.
