Placeholder for explanation of the key themes of the Pedal Parity blog.

 

Essentially, these revolve around:

  1. Equal billing for cycling – taking it as a serious mode of transport throughout the UK.
  2. Funding parity – to get the best benefits from cycling, funding needs to catch up with Dutch levels – still just £30-40 per person per year.
  3. Regional funding parity – narrowing the gap between London and the rest of England (and looking at why the gap exists).
  4. Accessibility – building a transport network that is easy to use, regardless of ability.
  5. Planning parity – making sure new developments are built to the best possible standards.
  6. Parking parity – cycle parking needs to be seen as a necessity, not just an optional extra.
