CllrSteveDelaneyAberdeenLiberal DemocratI agree the roads are too busy for most people to feel confident cycling. I tried it a few years ago, ably assisted by a friend from our local cycle forum and it was terrifying!

We are where we are with current road layout and need to be pragmatic as to what can be delivered in this respect, but where do opportunities exist to make improvements these should be done in consultation with local cycle groups.

CllrRossThomsonAberdeenScottish ConservativeI am pleased to advise you that I am the City Council’s Cycling Champion and in that role over the last two years I have been working very closely with the Aberdeen Cycle Forum. We have been successful in providing more cycle parking, ensuring new developments coming forward have proper cycle facilities, we managed to ensure that some cycle routes were gritted last winter for the first time ever and that is set to continue this winter, we have significantly increased the number of schools participating in Bikeability and recently we brought a petition to the petitions committee calling for the Westhill Cycle Route to be widened and improved. On the back of that a report is now coming to a future meeting of the Council regarding those improvements which is a very positive step forward.

CllrKarenClarkAberdeenshireLiberal DemocratAs an elected member I do acknowledge we need to do more on this issue

CllrAlisonEvisonAberdeenshireLabourThis campaign matches the work of NESTRANS locally which has a "vision of creating an environment in which walking and cycling are convenient, safe, comfortable, healthy and attractive travel choices for everyday journeys."
Clearly , although positive steps are being taken to seek funding for this locally, within the current climate there are many competing priorities and progress has to be looked at over the longer-term.

CllrNigelRobertsBath & North East SomersetLiberal DemocratI very much support that we should be spending at least £10 per head of population for Bath and North East Somerset this will be £1.8 million per year for cycling. Cycling is a vital part of our transport strategy.
19
CllrRogerSymondsBath & North East SomersetLiberal DemocratLots of off-road provision, but not much on- road commuting space. Need to confront the cars. Good campaign.

CllrDavidSawyerBedfordLiberal Democrat
21
CllrDavidPearsBirminghamConservativeWe need to encourage to cycle to work or use public transport and need to get the infrastructure right.its not just about the roads but issues like more trains with space for bikes will help.Some roads do not have space for cycle lane in which case other avenues need to be explored such as tow paths along canals

CllrMartinStraker WeldsBirminghamLabourBirmingham City Council is in the process of consulting about how best to make roads safer for cyclists and other road users.

51
CllrKevinWarnesBradfordGreenI am very happy to back this pledge. In fact, as a local councillor and commuter cyclist myself, I am doing everything I can to promote cycling in my area.

CllrHawarunHussainBradfordGreenFantastic campaign, best wishes for the future success.
55
CllrJasonKitcatBrighton & HoveGreenWe are passionate about supporting cycling and it has increased greatly in Brighton & Hove as we have continued to make the city a safer place to cycle. We continue to win UK and EU funding to improve cycle lanes, junction safety and much more. We really welcome the CTC's campaigning work to keep cycling on the political agenda.

CllrSvenRufusBrighton & HoveGreen

CllrPete WestBrighton & HoveGreenAs a Green Council administration, in line with our recognition as the world's first city committed to One Planet Living we have made multi-million pound investments in new cycle and bus lanes and pedestrian infrastructure improvements, personal travel planning and introduced widespread 20mph - all of which is together supporting growth in sustainable and active travel. The city is now a national leader in sustainable travel.
59
CllrRuth BuckleyBrighton & HoveGreen
60
CllrOllieSykesBrighton & HoveGreenWe're working hard to make Brighton and Hove a better, safer place to cycle but there's always more that can be done.
61
CllrStephaniePowellBrighton & HoveGreenCycling is fast becoming the choice transport for many. However, unsafe routes and roads make it often a deciding factor for many not to cycle.

Let's get with it , and make cycling safe for all. Here's my support for the "Space for Cycling" campaign.
62
CllrMikeJonesBrighton & HoveGreenDespite massive investment in local cycling infrastructure in Brighton and Hove there is so much more that still needs to be done to make roads safer for cyclists and all road users . As a cyclist and local councillor I am pleased to support this campaign.
63
CllrAlex PhillipsBrighton & HoveGreen
64
CllrGrahamCoxBrighton & HoveConservativeI am particularly keen to encourage more cycling to school. Safer routes and secure storage (whatever happened to bike sheds?) is needed to convince worried parents and sceptical pupils that it the best way of getting to school.
65
CllrRob JarrettBrighton & HoveGreenI'm very keen to support cycling in Brighton and Hove. I've been cycling for 50 years.

CllrBillRandallBrighton & HoveGreenBrighton and Hove is the UK's first Green council and we have made building new cycle lanes (10+ miles so far and more to follow), and road safety generally, one of our priorities. About 6,000 people in the city (population 273,000) cycle to and from work, school and university every day and the number increasing. I support your campaign absolutely.
71
CllrLizzieDeanBrighton & HoveGreenMany more people would cycle if they felt the streets were safer. There needs to be a greater balance of needs for alternatives to motor vehicles.
72
CllrLeoLittmanBrighton & HoveGreen
73
CllrLizWakefieldBrighton & HoveGreenI want safe dedicated lanes and signage.
74
CllrMarkBradshawBristolLabourI am very supportive of the campaign and it is very welcome given the emphasis on less confident cyclists, awareness and promoting better connected, more segregated routes. In Bristol, these are priorities for us and active work is underway to achieve these goals. As England's first Cycling City, we view this as unfinished business: we want to do more and to work across the City with neighbourhoods and cycling organisations.
75
CllrSimonCookBristolLiberal Democrat
76
CllrRobTelfordBristolGreen
77
CllrSeanBeynonBristolLabourBristol has invested significantly in cycling in recent years, which is very welcome. However, many people still understandably lack the confidence to cycle on our congested roads. I would welcome and actively support any proposals which make things easier and safer for 'casual' cyclists - enabling their confidence to be increased will benefit the whole city: reducing air pollution; tackling pollution; and making our streets safer.
78
CllrFiHanceBristolLiberal Democrat
79
CllrDaniellaRadiceBristolGreenBristol needs an integrated transport authority. We have a great cycling campaign here and a clearly set out 'Freedom to Ride' manifesto has been set up by Bristol Cycling campaign which I support. I am keen to explore the implementation of traffic cells in my ward to make the streets safer for cyclists and pedestriens.

CllrCharlieBoltonBristolGreenCycling is good for health, good for the environment, good for fitness, good for employers, good for employees, good fun, the quickest way to travel in a city, cuts air pollution, cuts congestion, saves money - all win, win, win.
85
CllrChrisJacksonBristolLabour
86
CllrTimMalnickBristolGreen
87
CllrTimLeamanBristolLiberal DemocratA long way to go perhaps encouraging cycling as one means of alternative travel in Bristol. Traffic congestion and pollution are on the increase. We create more cycle space as part of the future. Safe routes designed to link cycling across our city. Joined up thinking with investment as part of an integrated transport system at long last!
88
CllrGusHoytBristolGreen
89
Cllr RhianGreavesBristolLabourI have pledged my support for this initiative as like many people, I regularly cycle/walk to work and around Bristol. I don't own a car. Bristol is a fantastic place to cycle yet there are some areas where it could be greatly improved i.e. by Avonmeads in Brislington and along Bath Road.
90
CllrMartinFodorBristolGreenI welcome this report and attended the launch of the council's new Cycling Strategy. Better high quality provision for cycling is a vital part of our local transport infrastructure and will have multiple benefits for congestion, pollution, health and fitness. I am following proposals to do more in my ward and the city with interest and impatience when proposals get delayed
91
CllrGlenise MorganBristolLiberal DemocratI have already signed up as an individual but happy to do so as a councillor also. I'm particularly concerned that pedestrians and cyclists do not come into conflict. Walking is even more accessible as an easy way of getting exercise and it is important that older people do not feel intimidated and reluctant to go out, so let's move to a culture where cars no longer dominate our roads: more space for cycling!
92
CllrJackieNormanBristolLiberal Democrat
93
CllrClareCampion-SmithBristolLiberal DemocratCyling has a very important part to play in keeping our city moving. We need to make it safe and pleasant for all types of journeys and for all ages.

CllrChaudharyDittaBuckinghamshireLiberal DemocratThank you for your email. You have raised a very important and environment friendly issue.
Cycling will not only be a benefit to individuals because of their health but reduce pollution to our planet which our generation will be able to live an healthy life.
Cycling is very often discussed in council meetings. I myself am a great believer in 20mph on our street.
I very much appreciate your email, as you know there are a few designated areas for cyclists but I will try to promote wherever I can.

CllrDotFosterCalderdaleLabourAs a newly elected local councillor with close involvement with the CTC, l understand some of the problems faced by cyclists when competing for space on the road. To increase the numbers of cyclists on the road, and tackle some of the serious health issues in our community, it is important we make cycling safer to encourage more people to use bicycles for leisure and commuting. I fully support the Space for Cycling campaign.
