Postcards from my bike - Sydney

Sydney   city of design   where graphics and urban planning,   industrial design   thanks to CycleStyle for lending me this bell! and even the odd handmade design come together   to create a new city where getting around by bike is not only possible, but fun!   I lived in Sydney for 5 years in the early 1990s and it never occurred to me to cycle. Busy roads, no cycle paths that I can remember and definately no plans for urban "cycling hubs" LIKE THE UNSW: The Urban Interior: Visions for Taylor Square Bicycle Hub. The cycleways may not always...

The cultural sites, both ancient and modern are worth every moment of being in Edinburgh! I have mentioned on this blog that I love New York,  I can tell...

Postcards from my bike: New York

New YorkCity of endless flax   where even a journalist's dream can come true!   Where the promise of a milkshake will have you lining up while an early morning run will offer a once in a lifetime view....   New York is a city where old railway lines become parks and old streets become cycle paths. Each of these transformations offers a cultural cycle which is unparallelled in a major city anywhere in the world! I think I've mentioned that I love New York   I love that a new building, already 30 stories high, looks like the foundations...
