I was at an arts event today and, as you do, got chatting about cycling during the lunch break. The reason being that (car) parking around Darlington Arts Centre is totally inadequate at the moment. I of course suggested they use a bike instead.
What surprised me were the number (all women) who said they would like to cycle more but wouldn’t dare because it’s just too unsafe. When I told them about the cycling campaign, they suggested we should be representing the non-cyclists who would like to cycle but dare not.
We may see one or two turn up to our next meeting.
