From around the traps

The Mirror newspaper had an item on a British family that replaced their car with several folding bikes, amongst other strategies. There is the usual amazement that a family can do without a car.

The Telegraph newspaper notes that the UK head of Warner Brothers, Josh Berger, is fond of his Brompton, in as serious a tone as you might expect.

The Norwich Evening News has quite a good article on local and national initiatives to encourage the replacement of cars with cycles. It seems that the managing director of TRO (a marketing services agency) has a folding bike and his company supports a Ride2Work scheme despite a large portion of their business being car-related.

The Community Care website has a piece from their resident ethical living expert, mentioning his folding bike of course.
