11th International Bicycle Design Competition
ÃŽt's on again. Although in sympathy with Lloyd's comments on the 9th event, we would like a little more info about the previous winning bikes. The website is a little too obtuse for this wee brain. But guess the main thing about a comp like this, is an opportunity for designers to get their brain cells firing on a product that might just be the most efficient vehicle on the road. The organisers obviously have this in mind stating "We hope that through the coming together of different design concepts and cultures, bicycle product design can be promoted worldwide. Moreover, we also wish that a way of life incorporating bicycling could be spread worldwide, and make a contribution to improve environmental conditions." Registration is now open and first design submissions are due 15 August 2006. ::International Bicycle Design Competition, via ::Dexigner.
