NLA Cycling Summit


This NLA half-day conference brought together policy makers, representatives from the boroughs and design and planning experts to discuss the latest cycling strategies that are being implemented in London, with a focus on cycle safety. Updates were provided on plans for quietways, the London Cycling Design Standards, mini-Hollands and the provision of cycle parking across the capital. The conference also launched the Construction Industry Cycling Commission’s latest research into the link between the construction industry and cycle safety.


Make cycling ‘a national priority’, MP tells NLA summit


The momentum and political will is in place to power London’s cycling revolution throughout Sadiq Khan’s time in office. And the creation of more Superhighways, Quietways and mini Hollands must be reframed as not just good for bike riders, but for the city as a whole.
