From a very well respected city cycling source:
I had lunch with the Mayor of the aforementioned borough and saw in his eyes the kind of visionary politician that every city should have. A man who dares to believe that his vision of his city’s future can be achieved and who isn’t afraid to suddenly change a busy street to one-way for cars and put in bicycle lanes in both directions on either side of said street. I felt his passion and was charged by it.
—The Greatest Bicycle City
This is a city that fascinates me. Not only for what it is doing for bicycle traffic and culture but for it’s stunning liveable-ness. I live in what is regarded as one of the world’s most liveable cities. I can go to other like-minded cities and feel at home. Then I land in this city and wonder how the hell they do it. How the hell it many neighbourhoods are lightyears ahead of Copenhagen, Amsterdam and anywhere else in the way the streets are used by people. For all the talk of Liveable Streets, this city lives the dream. Walking the walk and talking the talk.
I think he might be over stating it a bit but I love (and feel the same) the part about Luc Ferrandez.
