In the world of universities, it’s a tradition that Nobel Prize winners get their own parking spot. When the Dutch professor Ben Feringa won the Nobel Price for chemistry in 2016, there was a slight problem. He uses a bike to travel to work. The university of Groningen solved this problem rather elegant… In an interview he also stated that his best ideas come to mind when he’s peddling to work.
When will car manufacturers finally get it. This VW add for a Caddy is quoting ‘Destination: Back to school!’. Road safety, air quality, noise pollution and so many others things in mind scream for 1 thing: get rid of these cars, use your feet or 2 to 3 peddle powered wheels to get your kids to school. They’ll also get a free lesson in transport possibilities. Well, that’s education!
A smart and beautiful designed solution by Senscommon for cyclists who from time to times need to ride in the rain.
Beside the fact it’s nice to see that people help people in need by any means possible. It’s rather ironic that excesses of a petrol based culture that may have influenced the severity of these natural disasters are becoming the heroes.
The other day I came across Cyclo Atelier, a social economy enterprise that promotes cycling and cycling culture in Brussels. It’s a place where you can get work experience, learn more about your bike, get your daily companion repaired or buy a decent, affordable and durable second hand bike.
A great video from the You Tube channel of Stijn Wens…
