One of our most dedicated cycle instructors, Maryam Amatullah, has won the Midlands region Local Cycling Hero award this week.

Around 100 MPs from all political parties attended a packed backbench business debate on cycling for 4 hours on Monday evening, with dozens of MPs taking part.

Local Transport and Cycling Minister Norman Baker made the announcements today on a visit to Cambridge.

CTC, the national cycling charity, welcomes David Cameron’s call to kick-start a 'cycling revolution', and urges MPs and councils to take action now to deliver the programmes and the funding required for it to become a reality.

With a government announcement on cycling reportedly imminent, here are CTC's priorities for what we'd like it to say.

The RideLondon festival saw cycling at its best, from families enjoying motor traffic-free roads in London to the peloton speeding through the Surrey Hills.

CTC's Chris Peck attended and spoke at the biggest cycling advocacy conference in Vienna in June 2013. Here is his own presentation, and the pick of the crop from other sessions.

CTC has welcomed the announcement to 'cycleproof' the major road network, which comes just two weeks after two cyclists were killed on the A30 in Cornwall.

The Chamber of the House of Commons will be the setting for a high profile debate and vote about cycling in September, with an announcement from the Prime Minister expected in August.

CTC is calling on David Cameron to 'Get Britain Cycling' after statements today and yesterday by the Chancellor and his Chief Secretary included billions for increased capacity on trunk roads and motorways, but failed to identify any earmarked funding for cycling.
