The UK Bike For All project selected six demonstration cities to showcase cycling in the United Kingdom and increase levels of cycling in those cities. The demonstration city project is a bit like the League of American Bicyclists Bicycle Friendly Community program, with cities selected based on cyclist-friendliness, receptive city councils, and so forth. The video showcasing this project features interviews with people who don't bike for transportation, with followups after instructions. Pretty good stuff for cycling advocates everywhere.
