designing hong kong

By Anthony Greene, as reported in the South China Morning Post, 9 April 2008


Sunday's (6 April 2008) mass cycle ride in support of a bike path along the waterfront was attended not only by experienced cyclists, who may be used to busy urban traffic, but also students and children who clearly would not have been comfortable on the roads without the safety of a group around them.

With a cycle route along the waterfront, leisure cyclists, commuters and tourists could all enjoy peace and convenience while getting around. And all of us would benefit from fewer vehicle emissions, reduced congestion and less noise pollution.

The government refuses to accept or support cycling as anything other than a minor leisure activity, when with a little imagination and co-ordination, poorly used land alongside the harbour could be turned into a cycle path cum footpath, making Hong Kong a truly world-class city, with cycling as a viable and pleasant transport option in the heart of our metropolis.
