Bike Culture In Gear
In our last post, LTT looked at the Bendy Bike, Kevin Scott’s new bendable bicycle that doubles as a bike lock too. It’s an innovative idea that isn’t likely to take the biking world by storm, but it’s the type of clever product that can help make the culture of cycling more accessible. It’s that culture, especially in cities like London and Boston, that is benefiting from the newest trends- bike sharing programs, newly designated bike lanes and bike cafes. London now boasts hotspots such as Rapha Cycle Club and Lock 7, and more recently, Look Mum No Hands, a cafe-bar-bike workshop that offers bike enthusiasts and commuters a one stop shop for repairs, catching a live screening of Lance Armstrong’s latest crash, hopping on the free Wi-Fi and grabbing some food and drink to recharge their (sustainable) tanks.
What’s your city doing to make the case for you to leave your car at home?
