Where there’s a will there’s a way.

And when it comes to supporting and promoting greater use of

cycling in urban Britain, the politicalwill is readily apparent. The way,

though, is much less clear.

 

The conference will bring together key decision makers, policy

formulators and experts to analyse public policy already in place to

promote cycling across urban Britain. Best practice examples from home and abroad will be illuminated in order that practical and replicable lessons can be extracted.

 

The conference will explore the end-to-end commuter journey

by analysing impediments to cycling in Britain’s current transport infrastructure and examining proven and proposed

solutions to these problems. With central government, city

and local authorities, transport operators and employers all having

a role to play in the delivery of cycling infrastructure that facilitates

the interchange between cycling and public transport, a holistic

consideration of best practice policies and strategies from this group will

be central to the day’s discussions.

Against this backdrop, the Cycle Summit will also examine how

ever-higher standards of cyclist safety can be made an integral

component of any public policy designed to promote increased

use of cycling. Cycling promotes a better quality of life and supports

 

Britain’s environmental objectives.

The Cycle Summit aims to connect the political will to a practical way
