Pedalling through the barriers to cycling

Lorraine Stone, our Fundraising Officer, writes about her journey back to cycling, thanks to a CTC project with her local council.
Advice during cycle training

Being somewhat of a scaredy cat, and living on a rather off-putting 'Big Hill', I admit to being a lapsed cyclist. Living only a short walk (downhill!) to my local town, not possessing a cycle carrier for our car, and residing around 25 miles (along a very busy ‘A’ road) from my place of work, are just some of the excuses I've trotted out to preserve the status quo.
