Getting Moving: Greater Manchester Cycling Manifesto

4th August 2013

Created by Love Your Bike and supported by a range of businesses and organisations in Greater Manchester and nationally, Getting Moving argues for bold measures to make Greater Manchester a cycling city.

To help in tackling climate change, improving health and boosting the economy, the area should aim for the target of 20% of journeys under 5 miles being taken by bike by 2020.  This will require ambitious policies, which need to include the manifesto five key asks:

  1. Cycling infrastructure should be high quality, consistent and appropriate.
  2. Cycling should be fully integrated into the public transport system.
  3. On-road cycling training courses should be provided free of charge for adults.
  4. Residential areas should have a default speed limit of 20mph.
  5. Campaigns to promote cycling from A to B should be bold, sustained and targeted.
