Here's some artwork for a poster I did for Haringey Council to promote cycling in the borough. You can see it up in Finsbury Park tube station. Finsbury Park also has that big fancy bike park which is a bit like Fort Knox. It's such a shame we have this attitude of having to have, scruffy, old looking bikes in the UK for fear of them being nicked if they're too nice. I don't think I know anyone who hasn't had a bike stolen at some point of their life. That's why that bike park has to have massive walls and be patrolled by security guards, unlike lovely Japan, where you don't even have to lock up your bike anywhere. Maybe Haringey should work on that as well as building more cycle paths... and that's how Phil sees it.
