Imagine you live in a country where you’re only allowed to cycle in areas that you can keep up with the motor traffic. Sounds crazy, not to mention pretty horrific, no?
Cyclists in England could easily find themselves in this situation if Highways England has its way and bans cycling from the A63 for exactly this reason.
This is the thin edge of the wedge, which is why we need your support and help.
Highways England should be looking to make cycling safer, not banning outright a healthy, fun and safe activity enjoyed by millions. Cycling UK has submitted its objections to the proposed ban and, thanks to the widespread outrage, this government company is now extending its consultation by a further three weeks, up till 12 March.
We now need your help and support for our objections. All you need to do is add your name and details below, click “next” and you’ll be taken to a template submission which also allows you to add your own views. As Highways England insists on only receiving hard copies, to save you the inconvenience and cost of printing this off and sending it in the mail, Cycling UK will print off your objection and submit it along with our final response to Highways England on the consultation deadline of 12 March.
Together we will stop the senseless banning of cycling on our roads.
