    Hi Horace: Thank you once again for a super presentation ref bikes and mobility the Techfestival. Some additional input to your presentation: cycle police has been around for a while at least in some places I know of. Try googling cykel politi for Denmark, cykel polis for Sweden, Fahrrad Polizei for Germany – you will find lots of pictures. Also ref Amsterdam, perhaps you already know but the history of bicycles did not come about by protests – Amsterdam was already a bike city until postwar growth brought about a lot of cars – and accidents. Urban planning did not accomodate cars and bikes / pedestrians in unison with many fatal accidents as result. A great historic article about this from the Guardian here. As you will see the history is a lot like the one you told about in China where economic growth lead trafic from bikes to cars – and now perhaps back again. https://www.theguardian.com/cities/2015/may/05/amsterdam-bicycle-capital-world-transport-cycling-kindermoord

  • Hi Horace – is there a copy of your presentation (video and/or pdf) available?
