Bicycling: Pedaling for Change

Beth Jacquot
Day/Time Taught: 
TR 11:00 am – 12:15 pm
Course Number: 

The bicycle, as alternative transportation, fitness and recreational vehicle, as well as a vehicle for personal exploration, has enjoyed a surge in popularity in the last few decades. The current cultural and environmental changes in the U.S. have brought the issues of alternative transportation and a more active lifestyle to the forefront of our consciousness. This course will explore the environmental, cultural, social, health and personal aspects of bicycling. We'll explore books written about cycling as fitness, travel, transportation, and community-building vehicle. The course will also include a service project and culminate with an optional group ride along the New River in Todd at the end of the semester.
