England has recently received great news for cycling! The DfT’s recent announcement of the Transition Fund provides £20m of much needed revenue funding to continue the good work that’s being done by local authorities across England to promote cycling and sustainable transport. Due to the timing of the Fund, the DfT are looking for schemes that can get up and running quickly, having already been proven to work.
Love to Ride is an established programme that has been running Workplace Challenges and successfully growing cycling through behaviour change in the UK since 2008. Local Love to Ride town/city/region web platforms will be up and running within 2 weeks of the project being signed off.
The requirements the DfT have set for the Transition Fund include that the DfT are looking sustainable transport projects that have “proven successful in the past”, and that incorporate “measures that support cycling and walking, and that will bring about an increase in numbers of people cycling safely.” Love to Ride is a proven approach which achieves these two objectives and many more.
