Commitment to Cycling

Cycling in London - 30 years ago - 18 Feb 2014 - Blog

Do you want to improve cycling locally……meet like-minded individuals…..and make a difference? CTC local cycle campaigners and cycle enthuiasts Phil Snaith and Geoff Rone have set up a forum in Carmarthenshire with the aim of making cycling a safer and more convenient way to travel.

Pie in the SkyCycle? - 3 Jan 2014 - Blog
Sir Norman Foster's architects' firm has hit the headlines with plans for aerial SkyCycle routes following rail lines in London. Should we take them seriously or is this simply a publicity stunt on a post-Xmas quiet news day?

Transport Minister Robert Goodwill has only been in post for a couple of months, but after the terrible string of deaths in London, cycling has come to dominate his portfolio. The Transport Select Committee took evidence from him this week, many of his responses were encouraging.

 
 
The ninth Cycling Scotland Conference was held at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome in Glasgow. The conference bought together active travel professionals, campaigners, volunteers, national and local politicians to learn from each other and to network.

 
 
Despite huge public and cross-party parliamentary support for substantially increased cycle use between now and 2050, the Government is expecting cycle use to FALL between 2015 and 2025, with little change between then and 2040.

 
 
While the Get Britain Cycling report calls on Government to aim for 10% of trips by 2025 and 25% of trips by 2050, in the bowels of the Department for Transport, technicians working on the National Transport Model are forecasting that cycling will fall for decades to come.
