Building Communities Through Cycling

20 Oct

From the Solihull Bicycle Campaign Vault October 2014.

Cycling Without Age is a fantastic initiative and has taken off across the world. Which just goes to show that if the right conditions are provided, communities can come together in surprising and beneficial ways.Humans are by nature a social animal, however so much of what we do now shuts us off from other human beings. A combination of the rise of social media and the proliferation of modes of transport that reduce interaction and have contributed towards a distinct lack of physical social interactions. Active travel such as walking and cycling contribute to more human urban landscapes and help revive communities, bringing people back together.
