cycling friendly cities

Ciclovía: A Moving Experience in Bogotá, Colombia from the New York City Streetsblog.

...skating, recreating, picnicking, and talking with family, neighbors and strangers. Ciclovía was simply one of the most moving experiences I have had in my entire life (no pun intended).

I shot with no plan, not knowing much of what was coming up next while we rode our bikes, just trying to capture the event in the moment.

The creative actions need to go zero carbon

Give up your car and get £100

Drivers are being encouraged to give up their cars - with an offer of £100 to put towards a bicycle.

The scheme has been launched by Islington council, which wants to slash carbon emissions in the borough.

It will give a voucher for £100 - enough to buy a basic bike - to any resident who does not renew their annual parking permit, which cost up to £200 for vehicles with large engines, so-called "gas-guzzlers".
