Looking for images from around the world

Hi all.

I am working on a CD-ROM project with the city of Toronto on car and bicycle dynamics in an urban environment. The project is basically to encourage cooperative driving techniques and learn to develop good skills for drivers when sharing the road with cyclists and to engender respect for all road users. Part of the project also relates to the understanding of bicycle and motor vehicle road sharing in other countries as well. Basically, I am looking for people who would be interested in submitting a few photos from around the world along with a brief statement expressing your thoughts on the role of cycling in that area.

Anybody interested?

Cool. By the way you're name would be placed with the image and writing as a contributer with your consent of course. Have you done any cycling abroad?

Thank you for all your interest everybody. The city of Toronto is looking into creating a release form/package that we could send out with all of the details. I will forward it to you all as soon as I receive it.

Cyclaholic, although the image size that I will eventually need is roughly 380 width by 280 height as a jpg, any type of digital image will do. I can use Photoshop to make the size and format changes that I will need later.

Right now we are looking for urban type images however we are look for things like bike trails/lanes, different ways that bikes are perceived and used other than leisurely commuting for example, taxi bikes or using bikes to transport food to sell in the markets, ambulance personnel on bikes, etc.
