The words above are from a book titled cycling: the way ahead for towns and cities, written by J. Dekoster, U. Schollaert, published by the European Commission (EC).
This EC handbook stems from the idea that the worst enemies of the bicycle in urban areas are not cars, but long held prejudices. It therefore corrects some of the prejudices connected with the use of the bicycle as a regular mode of transport in the urban environment. It also suggests some simple, inexpensive and popular measures, which could be implemented immediately.
The bicycle is a simple solution to some of the world
WHAT I LOVE ABOUT CYCLING
I love riding my bike. Whether it’s a simple commute, a high-intensity road race, a jaw-grinding brevet, fixie rides thru packed Indian city or a kick-ass technical single track – I love it all. Apart from riding bicycles, I love being all geeky and know everything there is to know about bicycles, technology, bike fit, and service.
I started BUMSONTHESADDLE to share this passion for cycling.
