Everything is pointing towards cycling becoming massive in the next ten years.
What do you think the major developments will be?
I think we will see many more hybrids, as electric motors become smaller and more efficient along with their batteries.
The battery will operate the gears and clutch, providing near CVT, as well as the lights and we will see more built in features like sat nav/music replay devices.
Safety features will begin to feature prominently, and that is an area that will seriously challenge the current safety bicycle.
I can't see recumbent designs finding favour where bicycles encounter cars, etc. as part of their daily grind but the more dedicated cycle routes developed will lead to their increased use, and they are much more suitable for all weather use and safety features.
The useless bike hire scheme in London will be overtaken by much better alternatives. Could there be worse?
Exciting time to live in if you are bike keen really.
