Our approach to cycling
Find out what our approach is to developing cycling as an activity in County Durham.
In County Durham we are carrying out activities, projects and programmes to achieve the following:
- Improved cycle network
- Safer cycling - as the main preventing factor is fear of injury / death
- Increased participation
- More sustainable travel - less air pollution
- Improved health and wellbeing
- Improved cycling tourism offer
A new ten year strategy, accompanied by a five year action plan which will be updated in 2022, is being developed at the moment.
When it's ready a draft strategy will go through a public consultation and then the final version will be published here. We expect this to be by the end of the summer 2017.
