Vegetation and hedge trimmings
Mending a puncture
Cyclists have problems with overhanging vegetation or hedge trimmings left on the routes they use. Debris can cause punctures or even serious injury if it gets caught in wheels.
30 March 2017 - 4:32pm
Highway maintenance
Road maintenance
Cyclists suffer disproportionately from poor highway maintenance, so they need local authorities to keep surfaces smooth, well-swept and defect-free.
8 January 2015 - 12:12pm
Contra-flow cycling (2-way cycling in 1-way streets)
Contra-flow street
Allowing cyclists to ride two-way in one-way streets makes cycling more convenient and attractive.

Cycle-friendly design and planning: Overview
Cycle lane
Cycling UK's vision is to see people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities feeling able to cycle safely and confidently for all types of journey. Designing - or re-designing - neighbourhoods, town centres and road networks to cater properly for them is essential.

Cycle parking (Campaigning view)
Cycle parking sign
It goes without saying that when people cycle somewhere, most of them will need a secure, convenient place to lock their bike for a while when they get there. Lampposts, railings or gutter pipes are simply not good enough.

Cycle lanes, tracks and shared use footways
Shared use footway
Cycle lanes, cycle tracks or shared use footways separate cyclist from traffic to varying degrees. Are they always a good thing?

Home Zones
Chester Home Zone
Children play, or want to play, in streets; and people work and live in them too. Creating Home Zones is a good way to reclaim roads as community space, rather than just a means of getting from A to B in a motor vehicle.
5 April 2012 - 12:05pm
Traffic calming
The speed of motor traffic not only aggravates local communities, but also puts people off cycling. There are a number of measures that encourage and enforce slower driving, including physical traffic calming (e.g. speed humps).
2 April 2012 - 12:47pm
Junctions and crossings
As 75% of cyclists' collisions happen at or near junctions, it's essential to do everything possible to make them safe for cycling.
