Campaign for Better Transport responds to Bikeability announcement

7 February 2020

Reacting to the Department for Transport's announcement that every child in England will be offered cycle training, Darren Shirley, Chief Executive of Campaign for Better Transport, said:

"We welcome this move which will increase cycling rates, helping us to meet carbon emissions and air pollution targets and benefiting our health and our streets. As these children grow up it's crucial that they also have safe and attractive cycling infrastructure so that their early lessons can develop into lifelong habits."
