“climate does not always deter cyclists”

February 22nd, 2012 | Posted by Hong Kong Cycling Alliance in advocacy | transport - (0 Comments)

There’s a interesting short post on the Cityfix blog about what factors encourage people to walk and cycle more, and it turns out that climate and geography have less of an effect than supportive bike culture and bike education.

They go on to say that people are also willing to walk and bike longer than planners generally assume, and that while aesthetics along a route sometimes get more focus from planners, these considerations are actually secondary for everyday users, where distance to key destinations, connections and lack of barriers matter the most for everyday users.

In Hong Kong, we have been pushing the government for a long time to directly support cycling as a mode of transport and to properly educate drivers in particular, so as to promote a better and more healthy bike culture. With the more recent discussions about allowing more mainland cars into Hong Kong, having a thoughtful and coordinated urban plan for Hong Kong that includes pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure considerations is more essential now than ever before.

The IEC boardwalk Cycleway Feasibility study presentation that the HKCAll made to the Harbourfront Commission in January is now available on the Harbourfront Cycleway website in English and Chinese languages.

This presentation includes a few of the many possibilities that the cycleway brings to the long boardwalk, as well as possible issues and brief discussions on structure layouts for the boardwalk deck. It is only 38 pages long, so is well worth spending 5 or 10 minutes reading time.

The audio of the actual presentation to the Harbourfront Commission can be found on their website.

Where do you want to go…? 您想要去哪裡?

The proposed harbourfront cycleway along the world-famous northern shore of Hong Kong island will conveniently connect all locations from Kennedy Town to Heng Fa Chuen, as well as providing a major leisure and tourist attraction in the heart of our city.

建議中沿香港島北岸建設的「香港海濱單車走廊」會把堅尼地城至杏花村的所有地點方便地連繫起來,並且能在這城市的心臟地帶提供一個主要的休閒和旅遊勝地。
