Advances in bicycle technology have conquered old problems of energy loss, child and cargo carrying, hills and discomfort. The only barrier remaining is what Lefebvre refers to as The Production of Space. Since WW2, new urban morphologies and building typologies have been empowering driving, thus squeezing out cycling, the mode with the most to offer society.

We want you to imagine the production of cycle space: a lacework of heterotopian districts and paths within which cycling is the mode we design for. A ready place for this to occur, is across the uncontested linear voids of the postindustrial city.

Supporting evidence: just walking doesn’t control weight; transit causes anxiety (see Fig 11 p.21); driving wastes space.
