Southwark's Cycling Strategy - Southwark Council

Southwark Council adopted its new cycling strategy Cycling for Everyone in June 2015. The council has a clear vision for cycling in the borough, that cycling will be for the many, not the few – the natural choice for getting from A to B, with attractive, accessible, connected routes that do not involve sharing the road with large vehicles or fast moving traffic. The strategy sets out a delivery plan and cost estimates to show how this policy will be implemented over the next 5 years.

Greater Manchester’s cycling vision - Transport for Greater Manchester

Greater Manchester has a vision to make cycling an everyday and aspirational form of transport, regardless of age or ability. This includes an ambitious target to increase cycling from 2% to 10% of all trips by 2025, alongside continued funding from central and local government. The transformation of Greater Manchester into a leading Cycle City region by 2025 has already begun with over £45m of cycling investment between 2012-2015. Increasing cycling levels will have a dramatic impact on the region’s health and economic prospects. With over one million commuting journeys made in Greater Manchester each day, there are significant challenges in managing the impact of congestion on network efficiency and air quality. 

Bristol Cycle Strategy - Bristol City Council

The Bristol Cycle Strategy was published in February 2015. The purposes for producing the Cycle Strategy were to set out approaches to encourage more people to get inspired to cycle, to demonstrate intentions to consider cycling in all work areas in the Council and to provide long term aspirations and priorities to attract new sources of funding. Bristol are already working from a good baseline of cycling, which sees over 7% of people cycling to work. 

Birmingham Cycle Revolution - Birmingham City Council

The Birmingham Cycle Revolution (BCR) is an ambitious 20 year plan to support cyclists across our city. BCR aims to deliver a step-change in levels of cycling and builds upon key cycling projects such as Bike North Birmingham and the LSTF Smart Network, Smarter Choices project. Our plan aims to make cycling an integral part of transport network with cycling part of everyday life and mass participation a reality. Wanting to improve our routes, making the city a safe and attractive environment for cycling and walking for all. The transformational agenda will play a key role in taking Birmingham forward as an economically thriving city with sustainable, active travel at its heart.

Cycle Coventry - Coventry City Council

Coventry City Council has taken an innovative approach to tackling health inequalities through the Cycle Coventry project by bringing together transport and public health teams and funding.  This has contributed to Coventry’s aim as a Marmot city to create and develop healthy and sustainable places and communities by improving active travel across the social gradient.  In the context of cycling this means ensuring that cycling interventions target those living in areas of health need, rather than just making relatively healthy people healthier, which could result in a widening of the health gap.
