Mike Rubbo from Sit-up Cycle, who’s recent video interview with Mikael Colville-Andersen made waves on the internets, posted another great video (check the whole post, it’s a good read too) with David Hembrow of A View From The Cycle Path, now a household name in the world of cycle blogs.
David is actually a Brit. who moved to the Netherlands with his family for the better bike infrastructure, which he now enjoys and makes wicker bike baskets too.
If David has a fault, itâ€™s his constant posting of the Dutch as such paragons of bike lane building, etc. It makes you just feel like giving up in a country like Australia.
Iâ€™ve told David this, but he canâ€™t stop. How could you in a country with 29,000 kms. of cycle paths? Itâ€™s sickening.
Anyway, my wish is to interview all the great bike bloggers of the world. With no grants, thatâ€™s a probably an impossible dream.
In the meantime, Iâ€™ve been using a young videographer, Violeta Brana-Lafourcade, whoâ€™s super economical, to go places for me, and to film interviews, which sheâ€™s done with flair.
Now, hereâ€™s what Violeta sent me on David Hembrow. I hope you like; Talking to David Henbrow. Do leave a comment. Itâ€™s mainly about Sit-up bikes which I see as the key to change here.
Thousand will say the type of bike does not matter much, but are they right? Hereâ€™s David.
Oh, and here’s the whole video of cycling in the Netherlands in the 1950’s that was used in Mike’s video.
