Nice work from Bharat Bhargava who answers the question How can design be used to change and improve perceptions about shared spaces? with a Lamp-Bicycle-Bench:
“The combined functionality allows for social interaction amongst strangers. It offers opportunities and encourages fitmess in the outdoors for free and is accessible by all. Using human power, this strategy also addresses ownership issues by allowing users to pedal to power their neighbourhood park lighting.”

The internet can be tough on the body. That’s why this Spring/Summer/Fall, I’m going to take some initiative to get to appointments and places on a bike instead of subway or cab. The thing is, my last bike was a rad little Huffy back in maybe 1987 so I am completely out of the loop. What I’m looking for is something that rides well, has brakes, looks cool, and is remotely affordable. All suggestions welcomed in the comments please.
