As we recently wrote, rumours are circulating that the government’s cycling body, Cycling England and its excellent initiatives such as Bikeability, may be axed due to government cuts. These rumours are getting stronger by the day.
We think shutting down Bikeability and Cycling England would be disastrous for the future of cycling in the UK.
Cambridge Cycling Campaign (the body from which CycleStreets was born) has written an Open Letter which we strongly support. (In fact, one of us was the main author):
Like many others, we urge everyone to write to your MP urgently regarding the points in that Open Letter.
