Would you be quickerbybike?

Quickerbybike.com is a campaign to promote cycling to non-cyclists
& decent cycling to existing cyclists.

If you commute to work or school but not by bike,
would you consider switching?

It's probably quicker, healthier, more friendly, more independent, cheaper, quieter & brighter.

If you already ride, would you promote cycling via your shorts?

If you ride like a bit of a wally, running red lights & annoying other road users,

would you wear the shorts and ride decently?

Quickerbybike.com were at the 5th Smartmoves conference at the business design centre today.

We heard from Mayor Boris's director of transport policy that nothing short of a revolution is going to take place in london for cyclists. He wasn't entirely convincing but the agreed targets to implement at least two radial cycle highways my may 2010 as well as the first phase of the bike hire scheme for central London, by the same date, sounded pretty bright.

There were talks by a few of London's transport leading lights, particularly Ben Plowden of Tfl's Smarter Travel Unit and John Dales, Director of Transport Movement and Streets.

I'll write more later. I've got to go and ride my bike. However, I spoke to a chap from Cambridge Council and recommended him a book. I couldn't remember the author: Gary, it's Tim Hilton. The book is "One more Kilometer and we're in the showers" and I recommend it very highly.

If anyone spoke to me or saw me at the conference and would like to get in touch, please do not hesitate to email me at martin at quickerbybike dot com.
