About the Book
The ultimate cargo bike photography book featuring 725 photos of the integral role the cargo bike plays in modern, urban living. Most photos are from Copenhagen, Denmark, but there are also photos from 33 other cities on every continent. From urban family living to goods transport and municipal services, Cargo Bike Nation is a complete photography guide to how cargo bikes fit into our cities and solve transport issues. There are 40,000 cargo bikes in Copenhagen alone, but cargo bikes are a rising star on the urbanist landscape, with many more appearing in cities around the world daily. The chapters highlight the different ways cargo bikes are used in cities. Families, small goods delivery, postal services, riding around with friends and municipal services are some of the categories. The book is a collection of street photography by Mikael Colville-Andersen - urban mobility expert and CEO of Copenhagenize Design Co. and known as Denmark's bicycle ambassador.
