This NLA half-day conference brought together policy makers, representatives from the boroughs and design and planning experts to discuss the latest cycling strategies that are being implemented in London, with a focus on cycle safety. Updates were provided on plans for quietways, the London Cycling Design Standards, mini-Hollands and the provision of cycle parking across the capital. The conference also launched the Construction Industry Cycling Commission’s latest research into the link between the construction industry and cycle safety.
The conference was followed by a screening of the film Bikes vs Cars, a new film by Swedish documentary-maker Fredrik Gertten which looks at the relationship across the globe between the car and the bike and the bike as a tool for change.
Bikes vs Cars investigates the daily global drama in traffic around the world. From bike activists in Sao Paulo and Los Angeles, fighting for safe bike lanes, to the City of Copenhagen, where forty percent commute by bike daily, the film looks at both the struggle for cyclists in a society dominated by cars, and the revolutionary changes that could take place if more cities moved away from car-centric models.
