Why we campaign for cycling
Cycling offers huge benefits to both individuals, and the UK as a whole. As well as being a highly affordable, convenient and healthy way to travel, it’s also downright fun, and believe everyone should to be able to share the joys and benefits of cycling. Tragically, however, two thirds of people in Britain find our roads too dangerous to cycle on, locking them out of this opportunity.
Cycling UK, with the support of our members, is at the forefront of the movement to change this, and to create a cycle-friendly future where everyone, young or old, feels able to hop on their bike, whether they’re heading to work or to school, getting out for a ride at the weekend, or taking on an epic long-distance trail.
What’s more, getting people riding won’t only improve millions of lives, but would also save the NHS millions of pounds, boost productivity, help protect our environment and tackle harmful air pollution in our cities.
