Video of The day: Bicycles and sustainability in the city

Architecture and Design posted several days ago an article including a video titled Bicyles and sustainability in the City. This documentary created by a crowd-funded initiative called Genre De Vie explores social effects and the place of the bicycle in the modern city.

According to the organizers: "In the past few years a growing number of cities worldwide have been (re)discovering the use of the bicycle. Sustainability plays a large role in the motivation behing the revival of the bicycle and takes on different challenges, placing itself in a new and relevant social position. The question then remains whether or not the revitalisation and new positioning of the bicycle could contribute to the livability of society."
