Alright, things are going to be different. We’re not going to worry about how they will get there by car. As for public transport, a mini-bus will suffice. We’re going to build the next phase of urban expansion on a bicycle mobility platform, and take back our lives. No more time lost commuting, money wasted on overblown transport machines, or lives ended too soon because of sedentary lifestyles. Welcome to Cycle Space.  

—Steven Fleming, Dec. 2014, the fifth anniversary of the cycle-space project.
