This blog is not about copying cycling infrastructure from countries with low numbers of cyclists but this fantastic film shows that even in car dominated cities it is possible to relocate space back to people and the positive effects of doing so.
In London the major has announced his vision for cycling.
Paris closes roads to cars and opens them to people in the summer so that people in the city can enjoy being there.
The Ciclovia in Bogotá Colombia shows how popular roads are when they are closed to car traffic.
The last 60 years of road building have shown that car traffic consumes all the space that is available to it. In modern cities this must be challenged. Cities will become more and more densely populated and so we need more efficient space solutions for transport and leisure.
