The Life-Sized City Blog: Sign Petition for Bike Lanes

Sustrans, the UK’s leading sustainable transport charity, has started a petition on their BikeBelles website that encourages women to cycle.

They interviewed 'over 1000 women to find out what they believed would most persuade them and other women to cycle more'.

'Overwhelmingly women wanted more cycle lanes separated from traffic, so Sustrans has launched our Motion for Women petition calling on governments to prioritise the creation of environments that encourage and support cycling, including cycle paths separated from traffic, as a way of enabling many more women to travel by bike.'As a result, Sustrans has started a petition to show support for safer bicycle infrastructure.

You can sign the petition until November 29, 2009 right here.
