Elections 2021: Cycling for everyone

Upcoming elections in Scotland, Wales and England are a vital opportunity to influence your local and national representatives and bring cycling up the agenda.

On 6 May, there will be elections for the Scottish Parliament, Senedd Cymru and over 150 English local authorities and city region mayors.

Wherever you live, these elections are hugely important for securing more investment in cycling and ensuring that cycling is accessible to everyone. To get involved and make your voice heard, just select your nation below.

What are we calling for?

We'll be running separate campaigns in Scotland, Wales and England, reflecting the different nature of the elections and the national and local context. 

However, across all three nations, we'll be campaigning on some similar key themes:

  • Funding for cycling

Increased investment in high quality cycling infrastructure and projects

  • Cycling for everyone

Central and local government must ensure cycling is accessible to everyone, regardless of where they live, their background or their ability

  4. Work with your community
  5. Improve the post-crash response.
