Why Cycle Cities Are the Future

Why Cycle Cities Are the Future | T2 Human Geography | Scoop.it

The 2010 launch of the “Boris Bike” – London’s cycle hire scheme, was the clearest indication to date that cycling was no longer just for a minority, but a healthy, efficient and sustainable mode of transport that city planners wanted in their armoury.

 

There are now more than 8,000 Boris Bikes and 550+ docking stations in Central London. And the trend’s not anomalous to London: Wikipedia reports that there are 535 cycle-share schemes in 49 countries, employing more than half a million bikes worldwide.

However, the real question is: will cycling actually change the city?
