Pledge to Streetsblog and This Awesome Elly Blue Collection Could Be Yours

Have you given to Streetsblog’s spring pledge drive yet? If not, may I suggest that this is the week to do so. In addition to supporting livable streets journalism and putting yourself in the running to win a Dahon folding bike, you could take home a sweet collection of books and zines courtesy of eminent bike-ologist Elly Blue.

If you make a habit of reading Streetsblog and you value the work we do to make the case for transforming our streets, please make a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing it.

We’ll send one donor who gives by midnight Friday this Elly Blue library, including Bikenomics, Taking the Lane, and the brand new Bikes in Space: A Feminist Science Fiction Anthology (sample story: “in Elizabeth Buchanan’s classic pulp tale of postapocalyptic Appalachia, a gripping bicycle-truck chase gives a young woman a surprising new hope”).

Our coverage has sparked some pretty raucous debates over the past couple weeks. With your help, we’ll continue to provide one-stop shopping for information about transportation trends and policies, discussion about best practices, and accountability for decision-makers. If you’re into that sort of thing, you can help make it happen by making a generous donation to Streetsblog. Thanks!

Why a Struggling Industrial City Decided Bikes Are the Way Forward

|
Reading, Pennsylvania, isn’t your stereotypical biking mecca. It’s a low-income, largely Latino, post-industrial city of almost 90,000 people. But without much of anything in the way of bike infrastructure, Reading has the third-highest rate of bike commuting in Pennsylvania and is among the top 15 cities on the East Coast. Some civic leaders in Reading have seized on the […]
