We recently delivered  our first inclusive Cycle Parking Design training and it was a big hit! Our Campaigns and Policy team presented the training, via virtual conferencing technologies, to an architects company who specialize in parking design. They came to us looking for support on their design and planning for Disability-inclusive cycle parking. Already a leader in the parking planning and design space they noticed the lack of options for Disability inclusive cycle parking, and parking for non-standard cycles so reached out for advice to help them understand best practice in cycle parking design.

All responses from the training day said our delivery and understanding was either “good” or “very good” and that the company’s objectives were “very well met”. 100% of respondents said they would definitely recommend the training to colleagues and others, so why not book us to help you understand your Public sector equality duty and get ahead of the pack when planning infrastructure?

The course includes a brief overview of disability in the UK and the social model of disability, followed by an in-depth analysis of disabled cyclists: how often they cycle and the types of journeys they make, the kinds of cycles they use, the barriers and enablers to cycling, and cycles as mobility aids. The course then provides a brief overview of approaches to design and disability before presenting a comprehensive guide to accessible cycle parking design. The course in interactive and problem-solving based.

In our sessions we can also offer live review of current or previous planning projects you and your company are working on and advise on how to make it more accessible to all users, including those with Disabilities, and compliant with the latest policy and legal guidance
