Heidi Biggs. "Feeling Climate Change: Intersections of Climate Change and Everyday Cycling." MDes Thesis, University of Washington, 2019.

Climate change presents a paradox: while it has transpired and is transpiring, it simultaneously feels intangibly distant. By collaborating with the Seattle urban cyclist community, a group whose practices are deeply imbricated with weather and climate, this thesis seeks to create speculative tools to contextualize climate change in its intersection within daily bike commuting practices.
