Easy journeys to wherever people work, care or volunteer, in and around our towns.


Safe routes to cycle to school, with every secondary school pupil able to cycle on their own.


Enjoyable trips for shopping, entertainment and meeting friends out and about.


Cycle-accessible onward connections for train and bus journeys from all transport hubs.

We want the right environment on the streets in and around our towns for people to comfortably make a 2 to 3 mile journey by cycle, with safe and direct routes, and secure parking when they get there.

We also want to encourage those who are not as confident that cycling is for them, whilst not creating barriers for more experienced cyclists who want to go further.
