Alabama to Wyoming: WABA's 50 States Ride

Last weekend, Island Press brought Melissa Bruntlett and Chris Bruntlett, authors of Building the Cycling City: The Dutch Blueprint for Urban Vitality, to Washington, DC for Washington Area Bicycle Association's annual 50 States Ride. The Bruntletts rode on a tandem bike 36 miles through the city, pedaling from Alabama Avenue to Wyoming Avenue with a team from Island Press that included two winners from the 2018 Bike Month Sweepstakes. After the ride, the Bruntletts gave a book talk to a standing-room only crowd at DC bookstore Politics and Prose. Check out photos from the ride below, and don't miss your chance to pick up the Building the Cycling City e-book for just $12.99 this month only.
