Cycling is a love letter to one’s city. This diva knows it.
You will notice a perfectly equipped bike later in the video. Two strong lights at the front, and three red lights at the back, I think two reflectors and one blinking. Front and back wheel fenders. The rack for the baskets is on the back wheel. The seat is waist-high (which reminds me, I should extend mine…) There’s a license plate! Well, I am jealous. We should all live in cities where cycling is taken as seriously as to involve license plates (not just online registration with the municipal police. I still have to register mine, mind…)
I’m also jealous of the bike paths in Stockholm. This is a good overview (though I wish I had the map legend for those interrupted lines. Maybe they’re their equivalent of sharrows?) This is a cycling planner, seems a City of Stockholm + Google mashup. And this is some sort of user-created idiosyncratic (and inter-city!) cycling path mashup. NB the ‘Grocery-shopping path’. Hey, I think I should make an ‘Arts and Crafts houses in Toronto’s West End’ path, or ‘Good seafood shopping path’ or ‘Cooking Indian tonight? Take this path.’ You can go wild with these things. ‘Cat’s Eye path’. ‘Post-industrial warehouse path.’
