Commitment to Cycling

Transport Minister Robert Goodwill today confirmed that he has given instructions to progress towards formal 'Commencement' of the Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy, paving the way for increased investment in improved cycling conditions.

 
 
New figures just out on local levels of walking and cycling in England last year (2013/14) show not much change over the year before in the proportion of people cycling at least once a month. Some local authorities, however, are witnessing significant increases in cycling rates.

 
 
The Government's latest statistics on cycle use show that it has crept up slightly since last year - and is now about 20% higher than 10 years ago. But at this rate it will take a very long time to catch up with our continental neighbours.

 
 
Despite 'safety' concerns by officials, over 4,000 riders took part in the Pedal on Parliament ride in Edinburgh, while nearly 500 joined a Space for Cycling ride in Sheffield. Hundreds more joined rides in Newcastle and Aberdeen on 25 April.
