Bikeway Design Atlas, edited by Lyle Brecht: a short review

An absolutely wonderful summary of the entries received for a bikeway design competition sponsored by the MIT-hosted Urban Bikeway Design Coalition in 1974. The intention was to inspire an opportunity for a creative rethinking of the urban bicycle environment. The results were certainly interesting. Beautifully illustrated and well argued; when I was a bike club president, this was one of the documents undergirding my arguments with governmental bodies.

Regardless, the book itself is an amazing document; well-designed, informative, well-organized, and attractive.
