Sustrans study shows people in cities want segregated space for cycling

Last Updated: 11/17/2017

The Bike Life study is run every two years by cycling and walking charity Sustrans and seven major cities. Sustrans’ Bike Life 2017, the UK’s biggest assessment of cycling in cities, reveals four in five people (78%) want more protected bike routes built to make cycling safer, even when this could mean less space for other road traffic. The Bike Life study is run every two years by cycling and walking charity Sustrans and seven major cities: Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Greater Manchester and Newcastle. Inspired by the Copenhagen Bicycle Account, it looks at progress across infrastructure, travel habits, public attitudes and the impact of cycling more widely. Bike Life shows that most people living in these cities think cycling is a good thing. Out of the thousands of residents interviewed, sixty four per cent said they would cycle more if on-road cycle routes physically separated from traffic and pedestrians were available. And over two-thirds think their city would be a better place to live and work if more people cycled. You can find out more below:

Last Updated: 6/26/2017

Cycling Scotland welcomes applications to its Cycle Friendly Development Grant Fund 2017/18 from community groups across Scotland. The Transport Scotland funded scheme is intended to encourage cycling in local communities, thereby increasing the number of local people making journeys by bike. Constituted community groups and organisations who are actively working towards Cycle Friendly status can apply for grants of up to £20,000 to facilitate projects which support improvement to cycling facilities and infrastructure. Examples of eligible expenditure include: • Procuring bicycles to improve community access to bikes, tackling inequality. • Installing or enhancing cycle parking to increase capacity and/or security. •Creating maintenance hubs (including procurement of tools, but not consumables). Although capital improvements will be at the core of successful proposals, Cycling Scotland will also consider funding complimentary activities, such as: • Monitoring and evaluation. • Cycle training. • Maintenance training. • Sessional work and support. • Promotional and engagement activities. The deadline for applications is 30 June 2017 (5pm). Further information is available below:
