Abstract

In the early 1970s, the imagined compulsory use of a bicycle route system in the cycle-friendly California university town that spawned the hippie movement led a high-speed cyclist to codify and popularize the concept that cyclists “fare best when they act and are treated as drivers of vehicles.” The town was Palo Alto, the cyclist was John Forester, and the concept was “vehicular cycling.”
