Did you know that in the 1930s, the Ministry of Transport commissioned the building of protected cycleways?

We’ve heard about an exciting Kickstarter project from Carlton Reid and John Dales. Ultimately they want to revive Britain’s long-lost 1930s cycleways. These lanes cover 280 miles of safe cycling space but currently they are hidden from sight.

A small team will trawl the archives and evaluate these schemes. Then they will approach local and national authorities with plans for meshing the 1930s cycleways with their modern equivalents. If they exceed the initial target they will be able to research a greater number of schemes and push for grants to enable rescue work to take place.
