Building a workable cycling network isn’t just about keeping the existing “fit” cyclists happy – it is about providing access for all. When the road network is safe on a human scale, people will travel by whatever means they choose, rather than only by the least unpleasant option they have available. Equal access also means that access should be retained for motor vehicles as far as is possible. In many shopping areas, a complete ban on through motorised traffic might create the best all-round environment, but access to car parking spaces should always be available. In fact, in a city whe cycling rates are 1/4 to 1/3 of all journeys, there should always be a lot more road space freed up, and this should include creating better car parking facilities where they are needed.
