Like most people that live in urban centers, I’m fascinated with the relationship between person and place, which means I like to keep updated on urban planning and infrastructure. I commute by bicycle and have long felt it is one of the best ways to experience a city, not to mention the environmental, health and traffic benefits.

This widely circulated image outlining the spatial implications of transportation decisions really spoke to me, particularly since I hail from a city that often talks about the interaction between cars and bicycles in militaristic terms.
