Cycle County Active County
July 20 - July 21
Cycle County Active County is the UK’s established and premier networking event for public and private sector professionals tasked with enabling, designing, implementing and improving provision for active travel, and embedding its use for more short journeys and more parts of longer journeys.
As public authorities move to adopt zero carbon strategies, the reasons for placing active modes centre stage have never been more compelling. Yet physical activity is not yet being prioritised in government policymaking, and experts from the health, planning and transport sectors are calling to increase cross-departmental government active travel budgets to £20 per head. Boosting active travel is a clear winner in the current drive to deliver much-needed social and environmental benefits across the population.
