Cycling equity – An evening with Dr Rachel Aldred
12th December 2017 @ 17:30 - 21:00
Dr Rachel Aldred will be in Newcastle on Tuesday 12 December to talk about new analysis of England’s Active People Survey looking at demographic inequalities in cycling, including figures specifically for Newcastle. Which groups are under-represented in cycling, and why is this? Can we change it, and how?
Dr Aldred is a Reader in Transport (University of Westminster) and specialises in researching cycling. Her work has covered injuries, near misses, cycling equity, and cycling experiences, using a range of research methods. In 2016 she won the Economic and Social Research Council Prize for Outstanding Impact in Public Policy. She tweets at @RachelAldred and her personal website is www.rachelaldred.org
We have organised a public event, open to all, and hope to see lots of you there; here is the programme for the evening:
Venue: Urban Sciences Building, Science Central
5:30-6:00pm – Registration
6:00 – 7:00pm – Talk followed by 15/20 min Q&A: Cycling Equity: who rides and who doesn’t? Why – and how can we change it?
