Sustainability in cycling – From Marginal Gains to a Circular Revolution.
A practical guide to creating a circular cycling industry.
A practical guide to creating a circular cycling industry
Imagine a bike that has been made from plant-based materials or reused and recycled parts. Imagine that the material wearing from your tyres or brake pads is biodegradable. That the lubricant washing down from your chain no longer pollutes the forest you are riding through, but provides valuable nutrients for the plants in it.
You no longer discard your old bike as if it were a piece of rubbish, but return it to the manufacturer so that parts and materials can be reused to make new bikes. Or, alternatively, you could plant your old bike in your garden for it to become part of the circle of life again.
To make the transition from our current linear take-make-waste economy to that circular economy, marginal gains are not sufficient. To get there, we need a revolution.
‘From Marginal Gains to a Circular Revolution’ is a practical guide to help the world of cycling make that transition. The book is based on the hands-on experience and in depth knowledge about the circular economy. Authors Erik Bronsvoort and Matthijs Gerrits combine background with practical applications for new designs and business models for everyone in the world of cycling.
