Darlington Girls visit Bremen

Seven girls from the Beauty and the Bike project are this week visiting Bremen to experience cycling in a cycle-friendly environment. The project has been running in Darlington for almost a year. It is documenting, via video and photography, the reasons why teenage girls typically stop cycling in the UK, but continue in cycling-friendly countries.

The girls are documenting their trip on video on a daily basis. You can catch their vblogs at the Beauty and the Bike site, www.bikebeauty.org, or on the project's youtube channel. Or watch one of the videos right here.

Sounds lovely. I remember Bremen from the early 90's (just after the Wall came down - oh the stories I could tell!). It was a great little city with a tram system & fairly light traffic. Seems that they managed to hang on to that!

We are now back, and the girls had a great time. many new friends made, most of whom will be returning in July to assess cycling in Darlington. Should be an interesting week..
