Motion text

That this House welcomes the Bike Belles initiative, recently launched by Sustrans, that seeks to persuade more women to take up cycling; notes that fewer than one in 10 women cycle more than once a month and that 79 per cent. of women think cycling is not suitable for them; further notes the many health benefits that cycling brings at comparatively low cost compared with many other methods of keeping fit; and therefore encourages more women to visit the Bike Belles website to see whether cycling could be right for them.
