Wider paths for cyclist can benefit parents and businesses, as well as disabled and older cyclists, the leader of the London Disability Cycling Forum told a meeting attended by Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson (www.tanni.co.uk)
Dame Tanni, winner of 11 gold medals as a Paralympic wheelchair racer, attended the March 2010 meeting, where the theme was getting more disabled people cycling.
Janet Paske, chair of the Forum and co-ordinator of Wheels for Wellbeing, said: "Transport for London has for the first time included cycling in its Disability Equality Scheme, following lobbying by our Forum.
"We want to help [TfL] design roads for people who ride three or four-wheeled cycles, which helps not only disabled people, but others such as parents taking children to school using child carriers and local businesses making delivery runs by tricycle."
