Of Bicycle Cape Town
While Cape Town is the annual host of the world’s biggest timed-cycling event, the Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour, it doesn’t lend itself to be one of the most cycle-friendly cities, and we often hear of the battle for road space between motorists and cyclists…
Bicycle Cape Town are hoping that this can change, and are busy lobbying city officials to make our streets more accessible to cyclists.
– What are some of the ideas they have?
– Are we trying to get to the level of Amsterdam, Beijing or Bogota?
– Getting the network to be more cycle friendly is one thing- how do we change the behaviour of cyclists and motorists – their relationship is one that needs a serious overhaul
