I'm shielding so news from outside is inevitably filtered. However, I hear alarming news about the way in which the cycling lobby is taking over our roads, closing them to motorised traffic. While I support environmental improvements, clean air and safety to pedestrians, I'm afraid that accessibility is being abandoned just now, - now that we're shut indoors. I live in Edinburgh where some roads are being closed like this, but I hear from all over the UK (London and Bristol in particular) that this is happening. I'd be interested to hear peoples experiences and whether theres any campaigns being organised. This is a key issue of accessibility for people whose physical movements are limited because of chronic illness.
My regular trips of about a mile by car to a local loch in Holyrood Park kept me sane and balanced while coping with the effects of withdrawal of medications a few years ago. I see others with disabilities worse or different from me being shut out of public spaces. I'd love to hear what people here think.
