Space for Cycling

Space for Cycling

The national Space for Cycling campaign aims to create the conditions where anyone can cycle anywhere
Cycle-friendly streets are people-friendly streets. We want everyone to enjoy the health benefits, improved air quality and community feel that Space for Cycling can bring – whether you choose to cycle or not.

Space for Cycling calls on councils to:


Plan a full network of cycle-friendly routes that allow people of all ages and abilities to cycle anywhere for any purpose


Actively seek the funding to implement the network and invest a minimum of 5-10% of the local transport budget in cycling


Build the network using the most up-to-date high quality design standards

View our Space for Cycling Guide for Decision Makers and get in touch to order hard copies. The guide is free and should be used to show your Councillors how easy it is to create Space for Cycling - and how much better off their constituency will be as a result.
