29 Aug Cape Town Bicycle Map
Hey Cape Town cyclists, have you seen this yet? The Cape Town Bicycle Map was developed by the publishers of Mobility magazine and organisation Ride Your City, to encourage more people to use bicycles as a mode of transport. The map’s cover, logo and look was designed by Bradley Abrahams while the inside layout was designed by Bronwen Moys. The map identifies a network of safer, connected routes; locates bicycle lanes and parking; details cyclists’ rights and responsibilities; and provides information about bicycle signage.
Gail Jennings, publisher of the Bicycle Map series says, “I have wanted to create a bicycle map for Cape Town ever since I first picked up a cycle map of New York during a visit there. And since then, wherever I travelled and cycled – whether London, Paris, Gotoborg, Lancaster – I collected bicycle maps, my office wall is covered with them.”
This first edition covers the central city, the segregated West Coast to Milnerton route, the southern suburbs and south peninsula. The soon-to-be-released Winelands Bicycle Map will include the Durbanville area as well as the Winelands.
