Re: Proposed Meeting with Daniel Glaser

Steven Edwards

There was an attempt to get that introduced in the UK a short while ago (maybe by Cycling UK if I remember).

I think it lost support as it:

1) Was regarded as a minor part in the scheme of things

2) Had a bit of negative publicity since it attributed the scheme to the Dutch (funnily enough!) yet the Dutch don’t actually make such a big deal of it themselves…(?)

Or did I imagine the bit ?

Would it be possible to have a campaign for drivers to open their car doors with their left hands so they see a cyclist approaching?. I think that drivers are encouraged to do that in Holland

Wednesday early afternoon would suit me. 
Other days might be preferable.

Daniel was at our meeting last Monday. He was on the CCC committee for several years but stepped away for a while. At last week's meeting he expressed ideas on a number of topics including diversifying our network, Dr Bikes, buddy rides and publicising what we do, as well as some specifics on reducing traffic in Belsize Park. 

We thought we'd have a separate meeting with him to float some ideas and get some external stimulus. Would any other committee members be free to join us? We were planning on Wednesday afternoon or evening but if you'd like to join in but are not free then, suggest some other times and I'll do a Doodle poll.

It would be good to look outside our bubble a bit; I hope some of you can join us.
