Funding4Cycling, Cycling Delivery Plan, Parliamentary cycling debate, new cycle research – a lot has happened this week in UK cycling. CTC sums it all up.
With a Commons debate on cycling scheduled for Thursday 16th October, this was never going to be a quiet week, but it has turned out to be busier than we could ever have imagined.
The subject of the debate was supposed to be the Government's long overdue Cycling Delivery Plan. This Plan, originally promised in August 2013 (when the Prime Minister announced his wish to launch a 'cycling revolution), was originally supposed to come out in Autumn 2013. However it has been postponed many times over the following year, right up to less than a week before the debate.
