Grace ter Haar reflects on three lasting impacts of her experience cycling from London to Glasgow during Ride the Change.
One month on, we asked Matt Wood to share his reflections on 'Ride the Change; and on the linkages, learnings and connections between the ride and global climate action.
In the days that followed this epic journey, our WhatsApp group continued to build community, link riders together and facilitate sharing, communication and bonding. Shortly after our Ride, Matt Wood developed and delivered The Puncture Graph; a handy visual representation displaying two variables: ‘total punctures on the ride’ and ‘total punctures in one day', broken down by various riders.
Our journey ended at Free Wheel North in Glasgow Green (although in many ways, this was only the beginning); the organisation creating a fairer, healthier society by enabling people of all ages and abilities to cycle as part of their everyday life. Norman Armstrong is the inspirational driving force behind this project.
