City Speak VI - Cycling in HK? E-mail

23 May 2009

The Conservancy Association, Fringe Club and Designing Hong Kong are calling for co-organizers, speakers and papers for a healthy debate over the future of cycling in Hong Kong. 

Cycling policy – Constraints and opportunities: Should cycling be promoted for health and environmental reasons? Should cycling be limited to leisure, sports and recreation, or is Hong Kong ready for commuting on a bicycle?

Cycling facilities – The length of cycle and mountain tracks are expanding and new tracks are planned. The growing problems with cycle parking demonstrate that more people own bicycles. Are we on the right track? Are facilities in the right places?

Cycling facility design – How can the design be more sustainable and bland into local environment? Do we need rigid standards or adapt to local conditions? What are the right materials – are concrete and asphalt the only safe materials.

Share with care – How can we learn to share space between vehicles, pedestrians and bicycles? Does it work? What needs to happen to make it safe?
