Slow Movement

The "Slow Movement" might be a reaction to the web speeding up life, although it seems to use the web to promote its cause:
The Slow movement is a cultural shift towards slowing down life's pace. The Slow movement proposes consciously seizing control of time rather than being dictated by it and finding a balance between using time-saving technology and taking the time to enjoy a walk or a meal with others. Proponents believe that while technology can speed up working, eating, dating, etc. the most important things in life should not be rushed.

From Slow Movement, Wikipedia, 2007
I am not sure if I quality; while traveling by bicycle would be "in", carrying it on a high speed train may not.
