Cycling Rights: Second Edition

When it comes to riding bikes, surveys show that 60% of people fall into the “interested but concerned” group. They want to ride, but they lack the skills, knowledge, or confidence to do so. Ken has found that unfamiliarity of the applicable laws contributes to this problem, so in an effort to close the information gap Ken authored Cycling Rights: Bicycles, E-Bikes & Micro-Mobility Devices published in September 2020. Cycling Rights: Second Edition was released in January 2024.

Cycling Rights is aimed at educating both cyclists and motorists and is full of useful law specifically applied to car/bike interactions, real case studies, and safety tips for riders novice to pro.

Profits from the purchase of Cycling Rights through the Bike Cleveland website go directly to support the organization’s mission of creating a region that is sustainable, connected, healthy, and vibrant by promoting bicycling and advocating for safe and equitable transportation for all.
