A brief analysis of cycling conditions in London from David Hembrow.
As a Dutchman, Hembrow highlights the shortcomings of British infrastructure that we have to live with. He makes the point that not only are the roads inadequate for cyclists, but that they aren’t really serving motorists much better either.
More than anything else, the thing that really struck me about this video was the shear volume of noise coming from the road. Motor vehicles make the urban environment a really unpleasant place to be.
