Can a bicycling system radically re-structure urban space? How are bicycling infrastructures made legible and accessible to their users at street level as well as at a grand urban scale? How can this mode of transportation be mapped and understood, as distinguished from the automobile and the pedestrian?
The Ramblers Highway is a daily record of notes, observations, and reflections on these questions. Using Dutch and Danish prototypes that have paved the way in creating bicycle-friendly cities, this project strives to answer not only what makes a city bicycle friendly, but how these provisions may strengthen the legibility and wayfinding potential of the city itself.
The Ramblers Highway is a blog started by David Vega-Barachowitz (Columbia University ’10) in September 2010 as part of his Henry Evans Traveling Fellowship, sponsored by Columbia University.
