weather protective bike!
The FireFly by GeoSpace is an all weather, self-illuminated, human powered vehicle. The FireFly shell connects to the front boom of a recumbent trike to create a cycling experience that provides a high level of visibility and protection for any kind of weather, especially dark, cold, or wet environments.
Everyone can ride a bike! As we think of problems of modern cities this picture means much more. Thank you Mr. Einstein!
reSITE loved that Janette Sadik-Khan took part in the organized bike bike ride across Prague.
W-O-W! We highly recommend this short documentary! In case you ever wondered what it means to be a bike messenger, here is your chance to find out. But this documentary much more than that. It demonstrates how truly interconnected all the different actors of the city are. Everyone has a part to play. Which one is yours?
Congratulations Sander Vanderbroucke! We would love to get to know you. Maybe you could even shoot a documentary about reSITE Festival. What do you say?
Brussels Express. A documentary directed, shot and edited by Sander Vandenbroucke, ex-base designer at Brussels Office. This is about mobility, bikes messengers and the crazy drivers of the most congested city in Europe. Nice job Sander!
Hello Bike! Are you lost? Are you waiting for someone? We sure hope that someone is going to come and take you on a ride.
reSITE Festival congratulates NYC for introducing the bike sharing system! We are happy that after London, Stockholm, Berlin, Paris, Montreal, Denver, Tel Aviv, Melbourne (just to mention a few) NYC became the next city to recognize the importance of using this mode of transport.
“Beginning this July, thousands of bright-blue Citibikes will begin swarming the streets of Manhattan and eventually Brooklyn and Long Island City, Queens. Mayor Michael Bloomberg and NYCDOT Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan made the formal announcement today that Citibank has signed on as the official sponsor for the city’s new bike share system.
Ten thousand Citibikes located across 600 stations will be deployed across the city over the following year, making the system the largest in the United States. Citibank has committed $41 million over the next five years to jumpstart the program, with MasterCard chipping in another $6.5 million, meaning no public money will be required to launch the system. “We’re getting an entirely new transportation network without spending any taxpayer money,” Bloomberg said. “Who thought that could be done?”
An annual pass for the system will cost $95.00, with weekly passes at $25.00 and daily passes $9.95. A map of official station locations will be released soon and additional information can be found on the Citibike web site.”
