The next general election will take place on 4 July. It’s a crucial opportunity to make sure the next UK government understands the benefits of making cycling a safe and obvious choice for all

Cycling UK has been actively engaging with politicians to advocate for cycling to be a central priority across all political parties in the run-up to the general election.

Take action for cycling

Now we need your help. We're asking you to email your local candidates to ask them to support better transport choices, and specifically to pledge their support for policies to:

  • Increase investment in active travel, ramping up to 10% of the transport budget within five years
  • Produce an integrated transport strategy designed to give people more transport choices
  • Improve the planning system by ensuring all new homes are required to have excellent cycling and walking networks

By championing this cause, we aim to ensure that cycling remains firmly on the political agenda, addressing key issues and advocating for policies that support the growth and accessibility of cycling nationwide.
