Climate change, the latest oil crisis, air pollution,
road traffic accidents . . . Locally and globally, cars are a damaging and often dangerous form of transport. Yet they remain extremely popular. Promoting cycling is an obvious way to reduce our car use – but is it working? Why aren’t more people getting on their bikes? Do cars simply give people what they want, or is there something more cycle campaigners can do to get their message across?
Tonight’s films will explore different approaches to cycling promotion, and take a look at how
cycling used to be . . . and how it could be again.
Come along and share your thoughts about the successes and failures of cycle campaigning, and to discuss ways we can get more and more people pedalling for the planet.
