Happy Monday to one and all,

 

I think this is a great article and hope you agree.

I especially like this statement;

“Back in the 1960s, we were doing the same thing as America, making cities car-friendly,” he said. Funnily enough, it was an American, Jane Jacobs, who changed the minds of European urban designers. Her book “The Death and Life of Great American Cities” got European planners to shift their focus from car-friendliness to overall livability.

 

Have a great week and stay hydrated on those rides.  J

Lydia
