You can do better than this

The Cycling Embassy has a manifesto and a set of demands. But it needs something shiny, a pretty picture to grab the attention of the people who need to read that manifesto and meet those demands. We’re looking for poster and postcard design ideas. Something that sums up the problem and the solution: the fact that fear of traffic prevents people getting around by bicycle, and that separation from traffic removes that barrier. Send them here.

I threw this together, with a handy photo of a 341 jumping the lights on Grays Inn Road…

…to show the prevailing British road conditions, and the reason why so many people who would like to use the quickest, easiest, and cheapest method of transport feel that they can’t. But it perhaps looks like I’m just being cruel to buses.

So I tried this…

…which is still being unfair to buses, playing on the fear (mostly restricted to Motorists who haven’t caught a bus since school) of sitting next to somebody weird, but now perhaps also implying that the problem for cyclists is sharing the road with all those other cyclists!

You’ll have better ideas. Send them in.

  1. Having just come back from London I was amazed how many cyclists were on the roads. Last time I was there( which was 7 years ago) there were hardly any around. Therefore well done London.
