There is this false narrative, this dangerous lie, that people on bikes are somehow getting away with something, that they’re not paying their way. This isn’t just a little wrong, it’s a lot wrong.

Read this.

@DailyHiveVan @modacitylife @mbruntlett @grescoe @CyclingSurgeon @unhabitatyouth @exerciseworks “We know factually that walking & biking are the two ways of getting around that actually save society money for each kilometre travelled. And that’s even before we consider all the many benefits that aren’t just about money.” #CityMakingMath #MultiModalCitizens
”The plan is that each citizen riding the bike to work will receive 19 cents per km. This innovative financial scheme is aiming to bring new #Dutch cyclists to reduce road congestion.”

That’s about how much cycling saves society anyway. #CityMakingMath…
The typical European car is parked 92% of the time. It spends 1/3rd of its driving time looking for parking. Its 5 seats only move 1.5 people. 86% of its fuel never reaches the wheels, & most of the energy that does, moves the car, not people. #CityMakingMath

“The private automobile is the poster child for what the report calls Structural Waste- a system that almost consciously & purposefully is designed to consume as much as inefficiently as possible.” Via @TreeHugger @circulareconomy #CityMakingMath…
Better, smarter, more persuasive #CityMakingMath, combined with compelling, “human” story-telling, can transform the conversation on how we build cities & communities. I hope you’ll read, discuss & share this whole thread.
