Provo Bicycle Committee Member Writes Senior Thesis on Bicycle Advocacy

Hey all,

Austin Taylor here.

I’ve written something I think you all will enjoy.

This week, I graduate from BYU. Since my senior thesis is about bicycle advocacy, I thought I would share it with you all. It focuses on how the quality of our communication makes all the difference in advocacy. My paper contains thoughts from my own experience and from urbanists like Jane Jacobs, Janette Sadik-Khan, and Mikael Colville-Anderson. Because of the type of person you, as a reader of BikeProvo.org, probably are–engaged, involved, maybe even WOKE–the paper will contain strategies that you can immediately apply in your own activism.

After 193 college credits, two majors, and two minors, I’ve finally graduated. I’m surprised it only took four years. Thank you to my mentors along the way like Dr. Aaron Skabelund of the history department, Dr. Brough and Dr. Coleman of the percussion studio, and Dr. Shumway of Latin American Studies. Thanks also to my wife who has let me be a workaholic for the duration of our marriage so far.

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy this paper!
