Transcript of cycle BOOM overview for SAG meeting 1

IMPORTANCE OF THE STUDY
A study to understand cycling amongst the older population and how this affects independence, health and wellbeing in the UK

Access to activities outside the home
Sense of control
Social engagement

Older people regarded as people lacking ability to cycle

Public spaces in the UK generally unsupportive of older cycling
