    Interesting data from Aberdeen street corners. Only 15% of cyclist were women. That’s quite shocking and an obvious target for growth to get to the same levels as men.

    very true! why do you think that is NImesh?

    • Nimesh says:

      Personal safety is probably the number one reason. Most women drive a small car specific designed and marketed with women in mind. More women would probably take to cycling if they had a police escort! Second reason is it’s probably a bit to sweaty and grubby for most women heading for the office. Solution…electric bikes with at-work bike workshop.
