This spring Cycling UK has been contacting candidates throughout England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales ahead of the various elections held today, 5 May. Cycling UK campaigner, Sam Jones, outlines what has happened and what’s next…
The remarkable recent rise in the popularity, profile and rates of cycling in Northern Ireland is being recognised by a political class seemingly undergoing a culture shift. Local campaigner, NI Greenways, gives a bit more background on what is happening this Election Cycle 2016.
Your Police and Crime Commissioner candidates have been asked by Cycling UK President and Channel 4 newscaster Jon Snow to support roads policing and reverse the decline in traffic officer numbers. Are any of your candidates prepared to Vote Bike and make a funding commitment?
Wednesday was one of the most meeting-packed days I can remember, with 2 Ministers, one parliamentary select committee, a presentation to some traffic planners, a visit to a cycle-friendly school and a public meeting all in one day!
