I am a researcher and translator (French to English) in the field of urban mobility, specialising in utility cycling and walking. With a background in architecture, journalism and urban and regional planning, I am able to offer a complete service for the research, writing and publication of documents in these fields. Architectural illustration and layout, technical writing and editing, and public presentations are also within my skill set. I look forward to engaging with your proposal for collaboration or future work via email or the form below.

    When one realises that a cycle lane barely wide enough for a car can move as many people as a four-lane highway and in total silence it is hard to think of sprawling, car-dependent societies as a utopia of personal freedoms. Brett Petzer shares his experiences and thoughts on planning the Cycling City.

    Niente è paragonabile al semplice piacere di andare in bici

    The bicycle lanes are a joke. Roads alongside main arteries need to be closed to motor traffic and vehicles channeled along main arteries. Life for cyclists and pedestrians can be made safer and more pleasant by the simple expedient, for instance, of closing rat runs to rat-runners. But still the motto is “motor cars first; road traffic first” “people second; pedestrians and cyclists a nuisance; habitability unimportant.” My neighbours and I have been trying to close a rat run for many years: which would make it nicer for pedestrians, cyclists and skate-boarders. But the city’s motto remains: motor cars first.
