Dreams on Wheels - Danish Cycling Culture

The 'Dreams on Wheels - Danish Cycling Culture for Urban Sustainability' exhibition rolls on. And now there is a website for the exhibition, in English.


Here you can read about the exhibition, see which cities it'll be coming to and what have you.

Next up is Tokyo and a series of other Japanese cities from 15.05.2009-02.06.2009 and Moscow from 20.05.2009-15.06.2009.

I'll thrilled to report that I'll be speaking at conferences in both Moscow and Japan between 21 - 31 May, 2009.

When I lectured in Riga last month, I finally got to see the exhibition live. In addition to the Dreams on Wheels show, there were various local bikes, including these two 'freak bikes' as the guys who make them call them:

In Danish a nickname for the bicycle is 'garden gate', which is given a new meaning when seeing the one above.

There was also a cool old Soviet bike with a crocheted skirtguard. A lovely touch.
