Design Awards

Further to Crap Waltham’s Forest’s blog on a new design for bikes – being hoisted on buildings to avoid thieves getting at them (see my link Cycling in Waltham Forest for the photo).

Firstly, I have to say it was a beautiful photograph but I do have some misgivings:

1) I don’t feel safe with those bikes hanging down on buildings
2) What if the bike thief lives on the first floor, wouldn’t they find ways of nicking them?
3) How do women and elderly hoist the bikes up?

Are these things considered when people with this design awards? It is just for looks isn’t it?!
