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). But 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”. There 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!
