"While the roads agencies and engineers are developing traffic models that look at how to accommodate more cars, we firmly believe the solution is not about how to accommodate the cars, but how to get the Sandton community to use green modes of transport such as cycling and public transport alternatives. We have the potential to do something extraordinary here, together"

- Vincent Truter, CYCOLOGY -

“The bicycle is the vehicle of a new mentality. It quietly challenges a system of values which condones dependency waste, inequality of mobility, and daily lack of access…"

- James McGurn, Worldwatch Institute -

"Every time I see an adult on a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race."

"The bicycle is the most civilized conveyance known to man. Other forms of transport grow daily more nightmarish. Only the bicycle remains pure in heart."

- Iris Murdoch, writer (1919-1999) -
