Objectives:

In recent years, cycling has experience an unprecedented renaissance in the UK. With support from high profile politicians, such as the London Mayor, increased funding allocations and growing recognition of the societal value of take-up, cycling can be expected to maintain its place in the public spotlight. However, it isn't all good news - cycling participation in the UK remains low compared to other European countries, and fears over road safety and a sometimes poor image contribute to significant gender, race and socio-economic variations in participation levels.

Topics:

Topics covered

• UK cycling policies and strategies

• Performance Management

• Public health and cycling

• Setting goals and objectives

Target Audience:

This course is designed to provide a solid introduction to cycling considerations and is suitable for professionals working in the fields of transport planning, transport policy, highway engineering, road safety, public health, or with managerial responsibility for these roles.
