Commitment to Cycling

Cycling UK, via its Cyclists’ Defence Fund (CDF), is now supporting six local cyclists in a legal challenge of Mansfield District Council’s (MDC) town centre cycle ban.

 
 
Cycling of course! This Thursday, the Guardian published a collective call from active travel groups and health charities for the Government to use future proceeds from the so-called 'sugar tax' to fund cycling and walking to school. Campaigns Coordinator Sam Jones explains how this came about.

 
 
People in England made fewer trips on average than ever recorded in 2015, according to the Department for Transport’s (DfT) annual travel habit survey, but it’s largely déjà vu for cycling.

 
 
Air quality - 12 Aug 2016 - Campaigning Views
Cycling contributes to cleaner, healthier air. Encouraging more people to cycle reduces emissions from road transport, and gives the UK a better chance of fulfilling its responsibility to protect people from the harmful effects of air pollution.

 
 
Cycling and the economy - 11 Aug 2016 - Campaigning Views
Cycling contributes more than many people think to local and national economies.

 
 
Rebecca Evans AM, the Welsh Government Minister with responsibility for Active Travel, will be using today's (Monday 8 August) launch of a new campaign by Wales’ leading walking and cycling organisations to urge people to have their say on how their communities could be better designed for getting around on foot and by bike.

 
 
The #Space4Cycling councillor sign-up tool has relaunched - and we need you to contact your councillors! Since the tool's launch, 744 councillors have pledged support for the campaign. However, elections since then mean that many of these people have lost their seats. As we gear up to revive the Space for Cycling campaign, we're calling on the public to help rebuild this lost political support!

 
 
National transport policy and cycling - 7 Jun 2016 - Campaigning Views
The huge benefits of cycling can be maximised by giving it a central role in national transport policy.

 
 
As the All Party Parliamentary Cycling Group (APPCG) holds its inquiry into England’s first Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy (CWIS) today, Cycling UK’s #morethanmilk action scores a result with over 50 MPs writing to The Times backing our five key milestones.

 
 
As the Government inches towards publishing its first Cycling and Walking Strategy (CWIS) for England, Cycling UK campaigner Sam Jones explains why funding for cycling (and walking) should be #morethanmilk.
