Newcycling AGM 25 March 2014 - Sally Hinchcliffe Cycling Embassy GB

  1. 1. Cycling Embassy of Great Britain An update
  2. 2. The Accidental Cycling Campaign Jan 2011
  3. 3. Cycling has found its voice • Cyclists and campaigners are becoming a force to be reckoned with
  4. 4. Cycling for everyone is the aspiration... The great city is not the one that has highways, but one where a child on a tricycle or bicycle can go safely everywhere. – Enrique Peñalosa
  5. 5. But mediocrity is built in by design • ... meaning hard-won money is likely to be wasted 4.1 LTN 2/08 Cycle Infrastructure Design provides detailed advice on the underlying principles of designing for pedestrians and cyclists. Key amongst these are the core design principles, the identification of certain cyclist categories (the ‘design’ cyclist), consideration of traffic speeds and flows, and the hierarchy of provision.
  6. 6. Or worse... Designs which actively endanger or at best inconvenience cyclists
  7. 7. Sometimes it seems anything ‘Dutch’ goes ... except ‘going Dutch’
  8. 8. Making ‘Go Dutch’ work in the UK • Translating ‘I want what they’ve got’ into something concrete
  9. 9. Showing what can be done
  10. 10. Responding to consultations
  11. 11. A growing body of expertise • Research documents • Infrastructure safaris • Policy pages • A-Z of cycling • Blog roundup • Advice and guidance • Probably the largest agglomeration of ‘kerb nerds’ anywhere on the internet...
  12. 12. What’s next? • Get international best practice written into the design guidelines (and made standard) • “Space 4 Cycling” must mean real space – for everyone
  13. 13. Oh, and a little reminder • Pedal on Parliament, 26th April, Edinburgh
