Another excellent film about cycling and urban design from Street Films, Utrecht: Planning for People & Bikes, Not for Cars, dropped a couple of weeks ago.
My favourite passage comes near the beginning (emphasis mine):
I’m really fond of cycling, because it has so many positives: it’s about the noise, it’s about clean air, about climate, but also about how friendly it is. You really have the idea that people are the boss on the street, not machines.
Watching stories about dramatic and positive improvements in infrastructure and culture is inspiring, especially when you learn that they have taken place, in large part, within one generation.
We could do exactly the same thing here.
