Scotland Lane and horses

Last week I attended a meeting a Lister Hill Baptist Church in Horsforth to discuss the problem of Scotland Lane. The meeting had been arranged by local resident and equestrian Carrie Emmerson. It was chaired by Cllr Dawn Collins and Nick Hunt from Leeds City Council's Highways Deaprtment was in attendance. The rest of the room was filled with 70+ folk who cared, and cared passionately, about the current sorry state of affairs. 

Vision workshop 2

It's easy to become negative and disillusioned when you are faced day in, day out, with with poor facilities, intimidating junctions and aggressive drivers - but it doesn't have to be like this. Leeds Cycling Campaign is developing a vision for what Leeds might look like in the future, something very different to what we have now and a whole lot better for cyclists. We held our first workshop a week or so back where we threw everything we could think of onto flipcharts.

A lovely A Frame on The Lines in Allerton Bywater near to the Millienium village. Unable to get my cycle though, could do it if I was willing to wrench my gear levers off. Really stupidly placed as my young 5 year old whizzed through, whilst I ended up having to cycle round the block to catch up. Luckily my eldest daughters cycle did fit through and she could catch her little sister!
