Britain’s Cycling and Walking revolution stirred up by the Prime Minister, now incorporated plans containing cycling prescriptions and free training and higher cycling infrastructure standards and e-bike programmes at National level.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson launched new Cycling and Walking plans to encourage cycling and walking. These plans include thousands of miles of new protected bike lanes, cycling training for everyone and bikes available on prescription.
To achieve the long term vision of increasing active travel and embedding the benefits of walking and cycling, new Cycling and Walking plans were formulated. Aim of these plans is to build on the increase in the number of people cycling and walking during this pandemic.
Cycling and walking will help reducing health and environmental issues and will help people get fit and healthy and lower the risk of illness. Additionally, it will improve air quality and help in cutting congestion as said by Johnson.
But to build a healthier, more active nation, we need the right infrastructure, training and support in place to give people the confidence to travel on two wheels. That’s why now is the time to shift gears and press ahead with our biggest and boldest plans yet to boost active travel – so that everyone can feel the transformative benefits of cycling.
Grant Shapps, Transport secretary added:
We’ve got a once in a lifetime opportunity to create a shift in attitudes for generations to come and get more people choosing to cycle or walk as part of their daily routine.
Here is details of the Cycling and Walking Plans worth £2 billion:
Along with the plans, a pilot scheme is to be released in public to encourage thousands of people to get back to cycling. It will launch the first lot of bike repair vouchers worth £50.
