- aim for 10% of trips by bike by 2025 and 25% by 2050, and
- £10 per person, per year in funding for cycling
Those are the headlines of today’s Get Britain Cycling
report, published by the All Party Parliamentary Cycling Group.
Now we need the Prime Minister to respond.
Together with the Times, Sustrans, the AA and British
Cycling, CTC is 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.
I gave evidence to the inquiry in March, arguing that
Government needed to do far, far more to improve conditions for cyclists. This
is the opportunity to start making the changes necessary.
Please do take a couple of minutes to sign up on the Number
