New Social Art School produced a publication about cycling in the city of Glasgow; offering interviews, insights and written statements by some of Glasgow's hidden pedalers...
In Glasgow, as in cities the world over, cyclists form a silent minority and relatively few people are willing to use the bicycle as a means to get from A to B.
Bodies at both national and local governments are keen to promote the many obvious benefits of city cycling, but posters and promotional packs need to be backed by infrastructure and investment.
Project by Eva Merz in collaboration with RSAMD student Edd Crawley.
Funded by Culture & Sport Glasgow, Visual Arts Award Scheme
