CADRA's Comments on the draft Reading Cycling Strategy 2013

08/01/2014

CADRA welcomes the production of the draft Reading Cycling Strategy 2013 including measures to provide cycle training and develop skills. We believe that safe cycle routes are key to encouraging more people to cycle AND discouraging cycling on pavements.

We would like to see more ambitious and far reaching targets on the provision of more and safer cycle routes.
