Mark reports from Sydney

Sydney : Going Dutch down under

This story is part of our youReport series.

We picked this up on twitter. Another one after Bruce McVean from Liveable London. Oh, twitter, what would bike campaigners do without you? This time it’s Mark Wagenbuur – you can read his excellent blog Bicycle Dutch or follow him on twitter @BicycleDutch. Mark kindly gave us permission to use the two photos… holiday snaps from the Down Under, not from his native Netherlands. And if that’s not enough, there is a full blog post on his website A trip to Sydney, Australia.

Mark’s tweets accompanying the two photos below: “Bourke Street in Sydney. Pedestrian crossing designed well! Good cycling infrastructure including a pump! Sydney gets it.”
