Cycling charity Ride Wise has brought back the scheme after its success last year. It is part of a wider campaign for safer cycling in Nottingham.
With the announcement that the Milk Race will return to Old Market Square in May, Nottingham City Council, Ride Wise and the campaign group Pedals are hoping that it will encourage more people to take up cycling in and around the City.
Through their ‘Cycling For All’ scheme Ride Wise are teaching people both young and old to ride a bike and be more confident on the road. Gary Smerdon – White is proud of what they have already achieved particularly through the use of their special bikes in teaching people with disabilities and learning difficulties to ride a bike – something they thought would never happen.
Pedals Chairman Andrew Martin is leading the way in encouraging people to be seen and safe on their bicycles. They are also influential in the campaign for better cycle storage, provision of cycle lanes and awareness of cyclists on the road.
Nottingham City Council are proving they are listening to concerns as they continue to improve provision for Cyclists in the City. Keith Morgan is a Transport planner with responsibility for cycling.
