520    In cities throughout the world, bicycles have gained a 
       high profile in recent years, with politicians and 
       activists promoting initiatives like bike lanes, bikeways,
       bike share programs, and other social programs to get more
       people on bicycles. Bicycles in the city are, some would 
       say, the wave of the future for car-choked, financially-
       strapped, obese, and sustainability-sensitive urban areas.
       This book explores how and why people are reconsidering 
       the bicycle, no longer thinking of it simply as a toy or 
       exercise machine, but as a potential solution to a number 
       of contemporary problems. It focuses in particular on what
       reconsidering the bicycle might mean for everyday 
       practices and politics of urban mobility, a concept that 
       refers to the intertwined physical, technological, social,
       and experiential dimensions of human movement. This book 
       is for Introductory Anthropology, Cultural Anthropology, 
       Cultural Sociology, Environmental Anthropology, and all 
       undergraduate courses on the environment and on 
       sustainability throughout the social sciences
