  • Ran across this while doing some research.  It’s a pdf of a truly awesome power point presentation put together by Professor John Pucher at Rutgers University, who puts out lots of good bicycling research. (I hope the link below works.) The title mentions New Jersey but don’t be put off–the focus is international with lots and lots of great photos, examples and graphs. It is 114 slides of livable streets goodness.
