WATCH: Conquering London on a hand cycle and the need for infrastructure to be accessible

WATCH: Last week’s ‘Ideas with Beers’ webinar included Isabelle Clement from Wheels for Wellbeing explain how new low traffic neighbourhoods and other cycling infrastructure has helped her “conquer London” on her hand cycle, but she warns councils need to make sure such infrastructure is accessible and inclusive.

Wheels for Wellbeing is a charity which aims to support people with disabilities of all ages and abilities to enjoy the benefits of cycling.

Also worth watching on the same video is Sally Watson (NCC) on shared use vs segregated paths away from roads (at 19:10), and Mark Hodson (West Midlands Police) on online video reporting (56:22).

Isabelle Clement starts speaking at 32:50 in the video below:
