Lady_CyclingWomen in UK cities have a positive perception of cycling, yet 73% never ride a bike.

Almost three quarters (73%) of women living in seven major UK cities never ride a bike for local journeys.

Despite this, over two-thirds (68%) say their city would be a better place to live and work if more people cycled, new data reveals.

Women: reducing the gender gap‘, published by Sustrans, details women’s travel habits, views and attitudes towards cycling.

The report, which is part of the Bike Life project, is based on an ICM independent survey of over 7,700 residents living in Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Newcastle and Greater Manchester.

CleanAirDayClean Air Day 2018 co-ordinated by environmental charity Global Action Plan is Thursday 21st JuneGlasgow City Council are holding an event from 10am to 2pm on Thursday 21 June in George Square which will showcase a huge range of exhibits and activities such as active travel, renewable energy, e-bikes, car clubs and electric vehicles that can all help to improve air quality as well as a mini-pump track provided by 2018 European Championships!

Air pollution is real and harms the health of millions. But there are lots of simple things we can do to improve air quality and look after our own and other people’s health. Clean Air Day is a chance to find out more about air pollution, share information with friends and colleagues, and help make the air cleaner and healthier for everyone.

What are your plans for Clean Air Day? Why not walk or cycle to work or school – and if you already do this, organise an event? For more information on how to do this in your community, at work or in school, download one of the free toolkits. Share your plans by emailing cleanerair@globalactionplan.org.uk

You can also sign up for updates about Clean Air Day by registering here.
