Commitment to Cycling

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.

 
 
The Cycling Action Plan for Scotland (CAPS), first published in 2009, set out the ambitious vision for 10% of trips to be made by bike by 2020. Over a third of the time has passed, but Scotland's modal share has barely increased.

 
 
Around 4,000 cyclists gathered in Edinburgh on Sunday 19 May and rode to Holyrood to deliver an 8-point manifesto calling for more investment in cycling, slower speeds, and better facilities for cyclists on Scotland’s roads. Peter Hayman, CTC councillor for Scotland, pedalled with them...

 
 
The number of people cycling to work has gone up in England and Wales by 17% from 2001 to 2011. In some areas, cycling is booming, but in others it is declining.

 
 
Six weeks of oral evidence, hundreds of written pages, and the report is out. CTC welcomes its publication and urges the Government to implement its 18 recommendations
