      Some interesting material on bicycles as urban transportation seen
      over the past couple of days:

      =====

      Found on the Copenhagenize blog (http://www.copenhagenize.com), a
      video of a lecture by John Pucher with strong arguments for cycling
      for everyone (nearly 1 h 20 min):

      Cycling for Everyone: Lessons for Vancouver from the Netherlands,
      Denmark, and Germany
      John Pucher, professor of planning and public policy, Rutgers University
      May 15, 2008, Vancouver

      Sponsored by Translink. Co-sponsored by by the Bombardier Foundation
      and the Active Transport Lab at the University of British Columbia as
      part of the series "Shifting Gears: Five discussions on the Future of
      Transportation". Program partners: Simon Fraser University City
      Program and the Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition.

      Here is a link to the PDF version of his presentation at his faculty
      home page at Rutgers University:

      http://policy.rutgers.edu/faculty/pucher/BikeSummit2007COMP_Mar25.pdf

      It is useful to keep this file open to get a better look at some of
      the presentation slides that zip by too fast to see in the video, plus
      everything is that much larger and clearer in the PDF.

      And a somewhat different version:

      http://policy.rutgers.edu/faculty/pucher/BikeWalkPublicHealth_April%206.pdf

      Two papers of Pucher's (PDF):

      Making Walking and Cycling Safer: Lessons from Europe
      (with Lewis Dijkstra, pre-publication version of the article scheduled
      for publication in Transportation Quarterly, Vol. 54, No. 3, summer
      2000.)
      http://www.vtpi.org/puchertq.pdf

      Making Walking and Cycling Safer: Lessons from Europe
      (with Ralph Buehler, in Transport Policy 13 (2006) 265–279)
      http://policy.rutgers.edu/faculty/pucher/TransportPolicyArticle

      Two more links via the Copenhagenize piece:

      Pucher's publications page, with many PDFs linked to:

      The latest from Streetfilms, their annual car/bike/public transit face-
      off, won by the cyclist (both for time and carbon footprint):
