This response to the draft Strategic Plan for Cycling proposed by Glasgow City Council contains 12 key recommendations. It notes a need for clear commitment to allow cyclists to travel safely across local authority boundaries. It also explains the importance of giving priority to the requirements of under-represented groups, such as women, older school pupils, disabled people and older adults. It considers programmes by employers and schools to encourage cycling and their environmental, health and social benefits. It examines the factors to be considered when developing new cycle routes and maintaining existing ones. It also recommends the extension of the cycle hire scheme across the whole city, particularly targeting the more deprived areas of Glasgow where ownership is lower.
