CYCLE CAMPAIGNERS’ CALL FOR A TRIAL OF BIKES ON THE METRO
An open letter was sent today to Metro bosses asking to pilot the carriage of standard bicycles on their network.
The bicycle ban on Metro trains has for decades been a big bugbear to the cycling community. The Newcastle Cycling Campaign collected corroborating evidence in 2011, and swiftly submitted this to Metro bosses. The cycling community was also quick to renew their demand to carry bikes on the trains at an event organised by Metro in November 2011.
