Overview:The Green Machine - The bicycle is a green icon celebrated for its efficiency and the spare beauty of its design. Its freewheeling sociability and role as an instrument of women's emancipation have made it a kind of "liberation technology". Urban planners, traffic engineers and environmentalists see it as part of the solution to congested cities and the global ecological crisis. Iain Boal examines this paragon of sustainable mobility and the mythos of the bicycle as intrinsically a friend of the earth. A much more complex story emerges when the bicycle is seen in a planetary perspective and in a wider historical and ecological setting.The Green Machine tells this history without illusions or moralism, in the face of the gathering climate emergency.
