Look Out For Cyclists

Ok, so Brighton is not a cycling epicentre. It is no Copenhagen, and its hills make the appeal of the two wheeled stead a little less alluring then when in FLAT places like Hamburg, The Netherlands, and even Cambridge (UK). IMG_1784But Brighton definitely does get its bike on. I spot spandex clad cyclists everyday whizzing by me. I have recently spotted a few cargo bikes out and about and even the mysterious voice on the bus warns dismounting passengers to “look out for cyclists”. IMG_1822There is some level of recognition that cyclists are part of the transportation ecosystem, however there is still a lot of work to be done and a lot of hostility between both cyclists and automobile drivers and pedestrians to mitigate. I have included a few of my favourite bike spottings throughout Brighton. Happy cycling!beached
