The Northern Echo are due to run a feature about cycling in Darlington this coming Saturday, 10th February. Journo Owen Amos came out with members of the Cycling Campaign to get an idea of what it is like cycling around the town from the cyclist’s point of view. We took him on and off road to try to explain the difference between the macho, assertive cycling required on main roads, and the relatively leisurely cycling possible on quiet roads and cycle paths.
The pic shows DCC member Tim Stahl (right) briefing Owen Amos after our cycle ride. The Pedestrian Heart issue is likely to loom large.
Update: The feature article, Saddled with traffic – or dodging the pedestrians appeared in today’s Northern Echo on page 11, and is available online.
