Cycle Waltham Forest
The programme will improve cycling conditions by making routes safer and more direct. Roads will have designated car and cycle areas so that both people who drive and cycle can use the road more easily.
We want to use the scheme to increase cycling among residents. Getting more residents to jump on a bike will improve health and fitness levels, and reduce vehicle emissions to create a more pleasant environment for everyone. We recognise that people need to feel confident whilst cycling so in addition to making routes safer, we offer a range of activities to encourage people to jump on a bike and feel more confident about cycling.
