Since our Campaign for Safer Streets was launched in May 2014 we’ve been calling for long term, dedicated funding for walking and cycling, particularly to help children travel to school by foot and bike.
To make this happen we have been pushing for an investment strategy for walking and cycling to be enshrined into legislation.
The Big Cycling Debate – Monday 2 March
With the General Election fast approaching the UK Cycling Alliance, which includes Sustrans, is holding a debate to find out what the political parties would do, if elected, to make cycling safer and increase participation levels.
The event will be chaired by John Humphrys, Broadcaster and journalist, and will hear from Robert Goodwill MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Transport from the Conservative Party, Richard Burden MP, Shadow Minister for Transport from the Labour Party and Dr Julian Huppert MP, Vice Chair of the Federal Policy Committee from the Liberal Democrats.
The event is now full up.
We will be live tweeting from the event so you can follow the action on Twitter by using #cyclingdebate.
