Us and Paris have won an award for "visionary achievements in sustainable transportation and urban livability". Yes, such an award could only come from the US of A and it is courtesy of their Institute for Transportation and Development Policy that we are sharing such an honour.
Ken's C-Charge scheme and best efforts to get us all on our bikes impressed the judges whilst we imagine our Parisian pals' fabulous Velib scheme won them admiration (come on, Ken - we want it too!).
To get the green gongs we had to beat off competition from Guatemala City, Eugene in Oregon and Pereira, Colombia. Which makes it sound a little unfair, to be honest.
But a prize is a prize, even when it's shared. Yay us!
