While wandering aimlessly around the web I stumbled across a book from those wonderfully green folks at Alistair Sawday Publishing, a travel book company. Go Slow England uses a bicycle as metaphor for going slowly.
This meshes neatly with yesterday’s Bike to Work Book posting on whether to promote cycling with speed or sedateness.
Buy ‘Go Slow England’ from Amazon.
Mikael Colville Anderson commented on yesterday’s posting, saying Copenhagen’s citizens pedal at a low average speed. In the summer he started a Slow Bicycle movement.
Oh, and Alistair Sawday may now be synonymous with ’special places to stay’ and green tomes of all shapes and sizes but he can also be credited with helping start a cycling revolution in the UK. He and George Ferguson, Dave Sproxton and John Grimshaw met up in the Nova Scotia pub in Bristol 31 years ago to found Cyclebag, the campaign group which would later become Sustrans, the sustainable transport charity which created the National Cycle Network.
