This is a great mini-doc by Alex Gallegos on biking in Detroit. It’s got a totally positive and uplifting feel and talks about everything from biking as a youth and social movement to the popularity growth for Critical Mass. It’s pretty nifty how the low density of this otherwise mid/large-sized city is seen as an asset here — the extra space on roads can be used by bicycles.
london, paris, lyon, montreal, toronto. you all have bike share. high five. 1,000 bikes here, 2,000 in another city. one might even have 8,000. that’s cool. but hangzhou has 50,000 and they’re not stopping. predictions call for 175,000 bikes by 2020.
