DfT plan sets out to double cycling activity

The Department for Transport (DfT) has set out a ten-year plan that seeks to double cycling activity in the UK by 2025.

Published yesterday, the Cycling Delivery Plan proposes to spend £10 a year on cycling for each UK resident by 2021 at the latest; a two-fold increase on the (estimated) £5 spent annually at the moment.

The government wants to see the number of journeys made by bicycle increase from 0.8 million to 1.6 million per year, and boost the percentage of school children cycling to school from 48 per cent to 55 per cent.
