Creating real space for cycling needs big picture and ambitious strategic plans as set out in our Cycling Manifesto. But it also requires lots of effort at local level by people who know and care about their neighbourhoods and the small changes that can make a big difference for better (or worse).
We’re working to establish a voice for cycling in every neighbourhood. This will involve developing a cycling plan as part of a Neighbourhood Sustainable Travel Plan (to include walking and public transport). We will then use this to influence local councillors and Neighbourhood Partnerships and build movements for change.
Please get in touch if you are able to help. Some areas already have groups working together. In other areas one or two people make a point of speaking up for cycling. In some areas we’ve not yet got started.
We’ve set up a page for each neighbourhood where you’ll find information about what’s going on, please help us keep up to date. We’ve also collected together useful information for local campaigns.
