Latvian Cycle Protest

bike carFrom Design Boom: During this year’s european week of sustainable mobility, a branch of latvian cyclists part of the “let’s bike it” community staged a creative protest, which effectively — and cleverly — showed that cars with single occupants take up way too much space.

This is by no means a new tactic of transportation protest, but it’s nice to see the spirit carried on, and hey, the frames might act as something of a crash proof carriage in case of collision. European Mobility Week is over, but you can get a recap of the proceedings here.

    The «Let’s bike it» people are not the ones to credit. This was done by Viesturs Silenieks and others from Latvian Cyclists Union.
    They have shot a beautiful video too: https://vimeo.com/107018306
