"Top tips: how we can make cycling more of a priority in the UK"

Link to The Guardian

"The latest National Travel Survey published by the Department for Transport showed that while the number of cycling trips per person per year has declined, the miles travelled per person has gone up. This decline in the number of shorter journeys made by bike has coincided with a lack of interest and the downgrading of cycling by central and local government.

"While we are now seeing a huge media and political interest in the socio-economic and environmental values of cycling, not much is being done practically to make the road systems more bike-friendly – particularly in towns. The transport system instead encourages us to stay in cars, creating greater levels of obesity.

"The question to be answered is: why has Britain achieved so little in encouraging cyclists?"
