Hi, my name is Mark Woodgate and I’m an urban designer from the UK.
1) What areas of expertise do you identify with? I have been a cyclist since my school years, I am very keen to explore the role of lighting in safety for cycling infrastructure and in how to make the cycle the first choice for urban transport.
2) How do you think your unique perspective will enhance our collective understanding of designing for cycling? I have to commute by car, it is too far to travel by bike, and to expensive to use public transport to bridge the gap. The three factors that prevent me from cycling more:
No separation from car and bus traffic
No secure bike parking
Poor road maintenance
