Believers in Bike Hour and Santa

imagesI couldn’t begin to tell you how huge Bike Hour was last night. I doubt even Max Walker could explain how huuuuge it was, Max Walker who has made a career in sports commentating with his particular way of saying huuuuuuuge. It was huge. Michael, who makes the posters, took his kids for a ride, and I took my youngest son for a ride. And 1131 people clicked like facebook. But for Michael and I, there is no backing out now. For so long as our children believe Bike Hour is magic like Santa, and observed by millions all over the world, we will go through this routine. As always, you’re welcome to join us.

About Steven

I'm on a mission to put cycling on the agendas of architects, urban designers and fellow academics, who see the potential for bicycles to change cities and buildings. My PhD is in architectural history and my interdisciplinary research spans art theory, philosophy and cultural studies. I teach architectural history and theory and design studio at The University of Tasmania, Australia, and formerly worked as an architect designing large public housing projects in Singapore. My favourite bikes are a titanium racing bike I use for racing, a Velorbis retro commuter for riding to cafes and work, a single speed ultra light Brompton that I take with me when I travel on planes, a 29er hard tail mountain bike that I get lost on in remote places, an old track bike that scares me, a 1984 Colnago Super with all original campagnolo components that is plugged into a virtual realm that I train in, and a Dutch-made Bakfiets, that could easily replace half of the bikes I just mentioned.
