What – or who – is The Innocent Bikestander?
It’s the cyclist that most of us are. Those who commute or ride for fun, or because it’s handy or because they don’t own a car or a myriad of other reasons, and yet quietly swear under their breath that things could be better. Infrastructure can be improved and more people can be encouraged to ride.
This is for all the people who know intrinsically that things can be different but might not know the language of describing how.
For too long, the car has been king, and yet we see in cities around the world that pedestrians and cyclists are biting back, and demanding better paths, access and – most radically – completely car free spaces.
As for me, I am one of these cyclists. I am an innocent bikestander.
