Thoughts with Anna: Is NI Assembly’s Obsession With Cycle Lanes Ableist/Classist?

Politicians in Northern Ireland are completely and utterly obsessed with cycle lanes. Don’t get me wrong, I am all for more cycle lanes and if there was a bike rack to safely store my bike at school, I would ride my bike a lot more. However, this is one of the only solutions given when the topic of climate action is raised. Maybe I’m too radical, but cycle lanes won’t ‘solve’ the climate crisis. We also have to stop emitting.
