Why Don't Teenage Girls in England Cycle Anymore?

Thanks to Kirsty for sharing this interesting short film exploring the barriers to cycling in England for young women.

Says Kirsty: "This fabulous, fabulous documentary has been making major headlines on the internet recently. Released last month to critical acclaim, Beauty and the Bike asks why teenaged girls in Darlington, England no longer ride bicycles, yet their German contemporaries in the city of Bremen still do by the thousands."

Check out the 8min short (the full film is 55min) below and let us know what you think...
