With her long coat, practical basket, and natty knitted hat, we simply had to ask this stylish lady for her photograph.
Little did we know, however, that this is no ordinary bike rider. This is Dr. Rachel Aldred, senior lecturer in transport at the University of Westminster. She was attending a London Cycling Campaign rally in support of Cycle-Superhighway 11 – a route that would provide a vital corridor of protected cycling infrastructure from North London to the centre of town.
Consultations for this Superhighway close on March 20th, so if you would like to help out, please give support for the proposals and let Transport for London know what a brilliant idea it is!
Through her media appearances and contributions, Rachel Aldred has done some tremendous work promoting good infrastructure for people on bikes. The fact that she turns out for protests like this one shows that she really practices what she preaches.
