Abstract

Cycling is an important part of urban transport. However, for many years its role has been neglected in the UK, with the focus mainly on the needs of motor traffic. Cycling is one of the most sustainable forms of transport, and increasing its use has great potential. To release this potential, highways, public spaces and other rights-of-way need to be organised accordingly. Planning for cycling is discussed in these guidelines; detailed design of infrastructure and facilities for cycle users will be examined elsewhere.
