New research commissioned by CTC shows that cycling could provide economic benefits worth £248bn between now and 2050 if England meets the targets for increased cycle use as proposed in the parliamentary ‘Get Britain Cycling’ report.
CTC, the national cycling charity, has hailed Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg’s announcement of £214m of new funding for cycling as a key milestone on the way to the “Cycling revolution” promised by David Cameron last year.
Yesterday (22nd January), CTC met with officials from the Department for Transport to discuss how the National Transport Model deals with cycling. Chris Peck explains why the model matters, and what CTC wants to see changed.
