Ride On! book design
The publication of Fortebolt and the Budapest Bike Maffia is both a photo album and a bicycle history adventure: author Zoltán Poós presents the history of Hungarian cycling from the early 1900s to the 1980s with his usual evocation of the past. Besides looking back, he also lists today's cycling organisations, which consider cycling as a profession, a hobby, and strengthen cycling communities in Budapest with their socially shaping actions every day.
"A witty and enjoyable read with numerous cultural references, also offering an insight into the recently unfolding success story of a truly civil, grass-root initiative of the Budapest cycling community. I am proud that the Netherlands embassy has been a minor yet highly committed actor in helping the activists work for a greener, healthier and more livable city."
René van Hell Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands
