Cycling Cultures - final report


A small group of hardy CEoGB members braved Cycle Superhighway 2, the Bow Roundabout and Stratford Gyratory last Tuesday to hear Rachel Aldred and Kat Jungnickel present their findings on cycling cultures in four English cities.

Their research, carried out over two years in Bristol, Cambridge, Hackney and Hull, revealed that – surprise, surprise – “direct, pleasant routes that feel welcoming and safe” play a huge part in getting people onto bikes, and keeping them riding.

Everybody who’s been to Holland or Belgium has seen the facilities there and that’s the obvious standard to aim for, isn’t it? – Clive, Hull
