Making transport more inclusive - Disability and cycling with Alice Verrall

Monday, 4 October 2021 - 10:00am to 10:30am

Val and Faith are joined in another Zoom session by Brunswick rider Alice Verrall. We take a look at the mobility bicycles can offer people living with disabilities and the ways in which cycling infrastructure can work to exclude these riders. Cycling can offer a mobility option to many people excluded from driving or unable to walk, but only if we re-asses our assumptions about who is riding a bicycle. 

Check out Wheels for Wellbeing in theUK for more about making cycling an accessible transport and recreational option for more people. 

Monday 10:00am to 10:30am
