‘Which bike did you use?’

What is it about?

A study on the impact of riding race and mountain bikes in an urban context. This induces having the neck blocked to look around well and having the head in front of the hands.

Inspiration: Same kind of study realised for motorbikes in the US & Awareness-raising courses in France on behaviours in regards with motorbike types

Why this project?

To understand what bikes were used when accidents occurred and make London race and mountain bike users aware of the risk they take in riding such bikes in an urban context.

For whom?

Mountain and race bike users and the ones that hesitate in choosing a bike to cycle in London.
