Livros de Bicicleta

Nos últimos tempos tenho investido mais na minha biblioteca de livros de bicicleta do que na de moto. Nada mais natural, pois já tenho boa parte dos livros interessantes e importantes sobre os veículos motorizados. Outra razão para esse novo investimento é que as bicicletas e as motos comungam da mesma origem, da mesma dinâmica e da mesma marginalidade no trânsito urbano. Para mim são da mesma família. Mais do que isso, são irmãs gêmeas. As bicicletas atuais são ineficientes e inapropriadas para pessoas com dificuldade de locomoção, e as motos atuais são, além de também ineficientes, pesadas e velozes demais. No entanto, não há grandes diferenças conceituais entre as duas, principalmente quando pensamos em como poderiam ser.

Aqui no blog também há outras páginas sobre livros que podem interessar, como a biblioteca de motos, os comentários sobre livros, os livros da vida acadêmica, e a biblioteca de livros técnicos e acadêmicos. Segue a lista, que não está em nenhuma ordem. Para saber meus preferidos, só vendo os comentários por aí.
