British Cycling attends Labour Party Cycling Summit

In a sign of how cycling is continuing to move up the political agenda, just a week after the well-attended parliamentary debate on cycling safety, British Cycling, CTC, Sustrans, AA, Roadpeace and other organisations attended the Labour Party’s ‘Cycling Summit’ at Portcullis House, Westminster.

Extract from British Cycling Website;

"British Cycling’s Road Safety manifesto highlights six major areas of action; cycling infrastructure, cycling awareness, road user training, HGVs, urban speed limits and law enforcement. All of these key themes were raised in the summit by various speakers; a remarkable testament to the degree of common ground shared by the summit speakers, which included safety campaigners, road designers, local government, motoring organisations and HGV operators"
