More Ladies on Bikes, Please
Sustrans, the UK's leading sustainable transport charity, has started a petition on their BikeBelles website that encourages women to cycle
They interviewed 'over 1000 women to find out what they believed would most persuade them and other women to cycle more'.
'Overwhelmingly women wanted more cycle lanes separated from traffic, so Sustrans has launched our Motion for Women petition calling on governments to prioritise the creation of environments that encourage and support cycling, including cycle paths separated from traffic, as a way of enabling many more women to travel by bike.'
In Copenhagen, half of the citizens cycling each day are women. Much the same is seen around Denmark and Holland.
Sustrans has started a petition to show support for safer bicycle infrastructure.
Cycle Chic encourages you to sign the petition until November 29, 2009 right here.
