Farewell Cycling Campaign - Hello Darlovelo

Yes, I realise it's more than a year since anyone posted here. There are good reasons.

Firstly, due to a gradual reduction in active members, Darlington Cycling Campaign took the decision in 2012 to merge its activities with Darlovelo. The latter had recently been restructured by its members, with the aim of expanding its campaigning role, so it made sense to combine our efforts. Darlovelo's website is currently undergoing a number of updates that will reflect this change in the near future.

Secondly, all our contributors have over time become otherwise engaged. Richard & Beatrix are working in Bremen on cycling policy in Germany, Mike is a full-time family man, and Duncan is now working at Bikestop, leaving little time for any of us to provide a regular input.

Be that as it may, those of us who are members of Darlovelo will do our best to sustain this blog as the voice of cycling campaigning in Darlington by mirroring posts from the Darlovelo site. Meanwhile, if there are any other budding cycling campaigners who would like to get involved, please get in touch.

I would love a balance bike for my son who is 4½ yrs old and has Autism. Due to his having autism, he can't peddle a bike or even tricycle,. but he loves to walk his bike like a balance bike, but he always hits his shins on the peddles so we don't get very far. We have the Red Hill trail and Bruce Trail that this would be perfect for. Even for just going around the block as the bike distracts him from wondering, so it helps with safety issues as well. Thank you for this chance and your consideration. -
