As London’s transportation systems become strained and the capital’s air quality worsens, recent years have seen a drive to create a cleaner, greener more sustainable transport future in the city. As of 2014, Mobycon has acted as a partner to Southwark council to create strategies to improve the experiences of cyclists and get more people behind the handlebars. Ultimately the aim is to create a cycle friendly district of London.
To help achieve this, Mobycon ran Kickstarter Session Master Classes in Southwark. These have been developed to share the best of European bicycling knowledge. Still, some people wonder how the Dutch and Danish approach can work in places where conditions are as different as in they are in the borough of Southwark.
‘Planning, promotion and education for cycling are great tools that contribute to making places thrive, people participate and be healthy, as well as to the quality of the living environment.’
