I thought the original consultation was posted on here but can't find it anywhere.

I've had an email from WAG with the results of their consultation/survey on barriers to active travel last year. More info is here http://www.assembly.wales/en/newhome/Pa ... temid=1829 but the headline figures they are giving are:

37% of young people surveyed walk to school most days
60% of active travellers rated cycling as unsafe
63% of active travellers rated the number of cycle routes as poor
55% of active travellers rated the directness of cycle routes as poor

Wonder if anything will change as a result :roll:

    The following three might explain why everybody I encountered in Wales this summer appeared to drive on the pavement irrespective of the number of pedestrians in the way!

    Drive or cycle?

    Both happen frequently around these parts :roll:

    Cycle.

    Obeying red lights and pedestrian crossings were pretty optional as well. And I am used to London!

    Lovely holiday though, will definitely be back.
