The Get Britain Cycling report, published by the All Party Parliamentary Cycling Group this week, aims for 10% of trips by bike by 2025 and 25% by 2050, and £10 per person, per year in funding for cycling.
Now we need the Prime Minister to respond. The Times, Sustrans, the AA, British Cycling and CTC are urging members to sign up to a joint petition on the Number 10 website, calling for the Government to implement the recommendations. In particular, the report calls for £10 per person, per year, to support a radical transformation of streets and roads, as well as training, promotion and marketing to shift the culture on our roads. This is the opportunity to start making the changes necessary. Please do take a couple of minutes to sign up on the Number 10 site.
We’ve recently seen some big initiatives to help people walk and cycle while socially distancing, including pop-up cycle lanes on the A270
