    Started by Mikael Colville-Anderson in 2006 with his influential blog http://www.copenhagencyclechic.com/ , Cycle Chic is all about the re-branding of the bicycle as not only transport and urban mobility, but also as something cool and hip and do-able in your regular clothes.

  2. When you picture a council junket you never see the fold up bike, the ferry and the cycle cafe. DCTV goes on a whirlwind (read cheap and quick – the way we all travel now) trip to look at models for European cycling along with the Dublin City Council cycling officer Ciaran Fallon. Along the way they meet bloggers and fashion designers and activists who all, incidentally, cycle bikes. We see how normal cycling is all across Europe.

    The establishment of a cycling office in Dublin City Council is part of a visible commitment to cycling as a transport solution in our city. This programme gets inside not only what the cycling officer is dong but what he’s thinking, what he thinks Dublin can look like and what he’s basing some of this on.

  3. As Dublin has grown wealthier we have become carcooned, basing our personal and city transport system on the car. We know this isn’t working – but what is the alternative and how do we get there. Speaking to academics and elected officials, council planners and staff, campaigners and cyclists - Two Wheeled City constructs a convincing case and viable plan to recast Dublin as a cyclable city. Healthier, cheaper, friendlier, faster – the case for normalising cycling has never been more powerfully put.

  4. A look at cycling in the City Center of Dublin. As a transport mode cycling is on the increase in Dublin. This documentary explores some of the many issues facing people who chose to cycle in Dublin.

    One Less Car doesn’t shy away from complex topics and, sometimes ambiguous or contradictory viewpoints. What emerges is the feel of a groundswell, of a phase transition as the act of re-imagining our city starts to see actual impact and gain critical mass. Part snapshot of the zeitgeist part cycling agit-prop.

    * Short Version was screened at Stranger Than Fiction - 2010 documentary film festival, short program. *
