Designing a bicycle city -- Helsingin Sanomat - International Edition - Metro
"Helsinki wants to profile itself internationally as a bicycle-friendly city. This is one goal that Helsinki has set for itself in its year as the World Design Capital. But what does the promotion of cycling have to do with design? “City planning is design, and how people move about in the city influences the city very much”, says Antti Kirjalainen, who is coordinating the cycling project of the design city year. Cycling takes up less space than driving, and the scale of a city designed with cyclists in mind is more human than that of a city designed for cars. “Cycling produces a better urban environment”, Kirjalainen says. The cycling theme is linked with all of the events, exhibitions, and background themse linked with the special year. The main event will be held on Helsinki Day on June 12th. That is when a bicycle centre will open up on Narinkkatori - the square in front of the Kamppi Center shopping complex. The centre will offer secure bicycle parking as well as advice for cyclists, bicycle repair, and bike rentals. Next to the centre, at Lasipalatsi, an exhibition on the theme of bicycles will open on the same day." - непростые коротышки from Bookmarklet
