@dashedlines My experience has just been with Edinburgh tenements where the stair is the same on all 4 floors, like this. This is the ground floor and you can see the shape of the stair (sort of rounded rectangle) from the skylight's light on the ground.
So I guess your close would just have had a handrail bolted on to the wall for all but the top floor? And so no balusters (the vertical poles/posts) to clasp something on to?
Castle St/Cathedral St:
Castle St also has narrow lanes next to Cathedral Sq and lots of traffic crossing lanes to turn down John Knox St. Motorway slip roads further north stop at traffic lights at junctions. Section under M8 isn't too bad going north (from right turn). I don't use it from left turn or southbound (I'm in Dennistoun).
I think connectivity is the key point Sally was making in the blog. As in "a dense-enough, good-enough network will create cyclists". Bear's Way and Ayr's Holmston Rd both needed later phases to connect them.
The odd thing about Seville seems to be local planning process. Consultations go on all the time but nothing happens. So some of public had heard about network of bike lanes. They didn't expect it to be built and no-one objected. Local gov actually saw it through and could say locals were consulted.
Totally different consultation process in East Dumbartonshire. Ayr had none at the time but Ayrshire Roads Alliance claimed they'd already consulted years before. Also ARA are controlled by neighbouring council so local rivalry came in.
In the din around Bears Way/Holmston Rd I doubt 'child friendly' point would cut through on its own. However, courting local press with 'feel good'/'what about the children' story might.
Are FoBW getting stalls at gala days or similar to try and reach families? Say, with postcards/post-its to collect their views?
It turned out some of the deeper links were missing - I clearly didn't go deep enough when using the conversion tool the first time. The problem was if I scanned too deep then it might never end but now I think I've managed to capture enough for all the forum pages to work but let me know if you notice anything missing.
@dashedlines The forum session time is set to 5000 days! I changed it to that. It will require the storing of a cookie and so if that's deleted then you'll be logged out. Is anyone else have the problem of being logged out?
@i I remember Berlin in particular was a fantastic place to be a child on a bike. We (Health Professionals) are well placed to encourage people to develop healthier, more active lifestyles - there are some initiatives related to this and some very active proponents i.e. Dr Andy Murray.
Hi @JoeSoap76 I guess you could look at the route you will be doing and plot it out on google maps. (Using directions) When the bike icon is selected you'll get a height profile. Then look for equivalent route locally.
You may want to check out Ride 63, I hear they are a nice group and could help out. You might find some more local clubs here.
