Space for Cycling: Chris Boardman shows how cycle-proofing could Get Britain Cycling

Our Space for Cycling protest ride on 2 September 2013 highlights the debate in Parliament to 'Get Britain Cycling'.

Olympic gold medallist Chris Boardman explains 'cycle-proofing' as part of the demand for the government to provide Dutch levels of investment in cycling.

Chris's video was produced by British Cycling to encourage everyone to contact their MP asking them to support cycling.

The key demand is for 'cycle-proofing' to be designed into all our streets as it is in the Netherlands, something that was highlighted in our Love London, Go Dutch election campaign in 2012.

The goal is to ensure all streets are:

  • Safe for cycling
  • More convenient for all
  • Making cycling a more desirable thing to do

What needs to be done is to:

  • Reduce motor traffic speeds, which is inexpensive, easy and incredibly effective
  • Make roads permeable to cycling and walking by removing blockages and allowing two-way cycling
  • Provide dedicated space for cycling on main roads and at large junctions
  • Build parallel off-street cycle tracks beside major roads and dual carriageways
  • Ensure clarity and good design at all junctions in order to reduce collisions

Conditions like these ensure cyclists feel safe, and sends a message to all road users road-space isn't just for cars but for all people.

The outcome of all this will be to make everywhere safe and attractive for cycling, making people healthier and our communities a more pleasant place to live.

The 'Get Britain Cycling' debate take place in Parliament at the same time as our 'Space for Cycling' ride on 2 September.

MPs will be demanding the Government increases investment for cycling to the levels seen in the Netherlands and Denmark.

It's very important to ask your MP to attend the debate and support measures to promote cycling.

In London it might feel like the 'Cycling Revolution' is just beginning, but for most of the UK it is still a dream.

This month the Government announced an injection of cash 'to make the roads safer for those on two wheels'.

That injection of cash amounts to something like £10 per person per year, but only for only 10% of the population.

Annual spending on cycling in the Netherlands is around £30 per person, and has been at this level for many years.

Following the Mayor of London's promises to follow our Go Dutch agenda, he has allocated a budget of about £15 per Londoner.

To bring cycling investment levels up to the Dutch standard spending in London has to double what's projected, while spending for the rest of the country needs to be 30 times what it is today.

Η διαδικασία των μεταφορών και των μετακομίσεων έχει πάει σε τέτοιο επίπεδο στις μέρες μας που στις περισσότερες περιπτώσεις συμφέρει να φέρεις ένα αντικείμενο απο άλλη πόλη ή περιοχή ακόμη και απο το να επιλέξεις και να μεταφέρεις το αντικέιμενο μόνος σου ακόμη και απο τη γειτονιά σου.

Το πλεονέκτημα αυτών των εταιριών είναι τα συνεχή δρομολόγια προς όλες της πόλεις της Ελλάδος αρκετές φορές μέσα στην εβδομάδα. Αυτό επιτυγχάνεται χάρη στη συνεργασία των μεταφορικών μεταξύ τους.
