  • With the success of the original six Cycling Demonstration Towns, we sought to expand the programme further. In June 2008, Bristol was announced as the UK's first official Cycling City, together with a further 11 Cycling Towns across England winning a share of a record £100m investment package to pioneer innovative ways to increase cycling in their areas.
    Our 11 other towns are launching similar programmes – collectively amounting to a £100m investment package.
    With the expansion of the Cycling Towns programme, over 2.5 million adults and children will now benefit from levels of investment equivalent to the best European cycling cities.
    11 other towns:
    Blackpool
    Cambridge
    Chester
    Colchester
    Leighton/Linslade
    Shrewsbury
    Southend on Sea
    Southport with Ainsdale
    Stoke
    Woking
    York
  • There are three Bikeability levels starting with basic bike handling skills and progressing to on-road training
     
    Level 1 (children up to nine years old) is usually covered in a traffic free environment. By completing Level 1, you will be able to demonstrate the skills and understanding to be able to make a trip and undertake activities safely in a motor traffic free environment and as a pre-requisite to a road trip
     
    Level 2 is covered on quiet roads but with real traffic conditions. By completing Level 2 you will be able to demonstrate the skills and understanding to be able to make a trip safely to school, work or leisure on quiet roads
     
    Level 3 is covered on busy roads incorporating real traffic conditions and advanced road features. By completing Level 3 you will be able demonstrate the skills and understanding to be able to make a trip safely to school, work or leisure on busy roads and using complex junctions and road features
     
    Children will be encouraged and inspired to achieve all three levels, recognising that there is always more to learn and to enjoy on a bike.
  • UK levels of cycling remain lower than many neighbouring European countries where investment in cycling has been sustained at higher levels, typically £10 per head of population compared to around 50p per annum in the UK. Within new developments, and particularly eco-towns there is great potential to replicate the levels of cycling already achieved in neighbouring European countries. There has already been an 85% increase in cycling on London’s roads during the last decade and many other towns and parts of the national cycle network are recording annual increases in excess of 5%.
  • Personal Travel Fact Sheet produced by the DfT reported that:
    87% of adults agree that everyone should be encouraged to cycle to assist their health
    help the environment (79%)
    ease congestion (73%)
