Policy director

Roger first became involved in cycling as a volunteer with the London Cycling Campaign in the late 1980s. He then went on to take active roles in various transport and environment groups including the UK's anti-road movement of the early 1990s.

While working in local government, Roger gained a masters degree in Transport, focusing on walking, cycling and Local Transport Plan policies. He subsequently worked for a while in transport consultancy, specialising in cycling and sustainable transport projects.

Roger joined Cycling UK (then CTC) in 2002 and has the challenge of persuading the UK’s politicians, the media and the wider public of the need for action to improve cycling conditions, while positively encouraging more people to cycle, whether for day-to-day journeys or for recreation.

Roger loves hill walking and enjoys classical music and football (but strictly as a spectator).
