After taking this photo of two hire bikes from the company Lime, and posting it to Twitter, Lime contacted me to reassure me they would be moved. I have also heard from a new company that produces accessible bike stores available for all types of cycles, including those used by disabled people.
What’s shocking about posting this picture was the aggression from those that support cycling but who seem to see disabled people speaking out about any negative impact as unacceptable. Real hostility. Important to remember if you are disabled and want to complain about things like this, maybe come to one of our reporting team. We can tell your story without you being named so you tell that story without being targeted.
