The city of the future should not have infrastructure for cycling. It should be infrastructure for cycling. Velotopia is our response to Antonio Sant’Elia’s call for “each generation […] to build it’s own cities.” A century ago that meant cities designed for machines, like Wiley Corbett’s vision below on the left. In our age it should mean cities designed around elegant and simple devices such as the bike. Our taste is not for poor design compensated for by machines, but the elimination of machines through smarter design.
