Your chance to shape cycling in Britain - Government wants to hear your thoughts

The government announced on Friday that it has launched a review into cycling and walking safety, and through the Department for Transport it wants to hear from cyclists and cycling organisations to help shape future policy.

The Department for Transport’s Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy: Safety Review includes a ‘call for evidence’ from cyclists, which includes the opportunity to fill in an online survey to give your thoughts on cycling/walking safety in the UK.

The full article a links to the survey are in this week's Cycling Weekly here


Become a cycling instructor

If you love cycling, you might consider becoming a cycling instructor. Whether you would like to make it a full-time job or you just want to pass on some skills at your local school or youth club, undertaking the National Standard Instructor training is the first step.

Kingston is the only London borough recognised as an instructor training organisation (ITO). Since 2007, we have trained more than 300 instructors for local authorities and independent providers.

Get involved?

Cycling is a fantastic way to exercise, travel, and enjoy the great outdoors. Wind in the hair (under your helmet of course), sunglasses on, and a picnic in your bag. However, not everyone sees it this way.

Therefore, CycleKingston is appealing to you to share the good, the bad (and the ugly?!) We want to hear your cycling experiences, news and showcase success stories along the way too.

If you have material you think we should feature on the website, drop us an email on with the information and some images and we'll do our best to feature them.
