My Bike Loves Me


Forgot to blog this last week. At the Velocity 2009, the Brussels Mobilité org gave out free heart-shaped bicycle bells and condoms. Velove is a play on 'vélo love' or 'bike love'. Personally, I can't bring myself to love a tool/transport option/metal machine, but hey, I get their point.
Cool marketing.
Check out their website in French or Flemish at www.velove.be.

In other Copenhagenize.com news, Jan Gehl, the legendary urban planner, is coming to Toronto.
