March 18, 2005
You may remember that I was until recently on the University Environment committee as the Bicycle User's group representative. This has now been restructured, and we now have a 'cycling working group', for want of a better name for it, which reports to the Environment Committee.
We've been asked for suggestions as to how to set up a bicycle pool for use by University staff/students.
After some discussion of this we came to the conclusion that several variations on this proposal could be sensible, depending on the precise aims of such a scheme.
Some possible aims could be:
1) reduce intra-University car travel
2) reduce extra-University car travel
3) improved the general health of members
So: this is a request for proposals as to how such a scheme might be organised, and/or aims which would be met by various features of the proposal.
It would be helpful, I think, if you would post your suggestions to this blog, to allow other BUG members to consider and comment on them.
This would also give me a better idea of what is most popular (at least amongst current cyclists, anyway!) The next meeting of this group is 27th April so there is a bit of time for you to think.
