We know from speaking to local people, that many don't cycle because of the aggressive traffic and road environments. Yet, most quite like the idea of getting around on two wheels. Bringing the two logically together we are asking for better cycling conditions and more dedicated space for cycling. Any modern and liveable city has embraced the bicycle - an inexpensive and quick means of transport, inclusive, green and healthy. And Newcastle's aspirations are just that. We are looking to learn from cities like Copenhagen and Amsterdam.
