Government Funding Boost for Cycle Ambition Cities

The government has identified seven winning Cycle Ambition City bids and is contributing over £7 million to these cities this year as part of the Department for Transport’s Cycle safety review.

Successful bids will be spent on a range of improvements to encourage more people to cycle as part of their everyday journeys – from a new 6km cycle route in West Yorkshire to improving crossings for cyclists and pedestrians in Bristol and Cambridge.

The six Cycle Ambition Cities with successful bids:

  • Birmingham
  • Bristol
  • Cambridge
  • Leeds (Calderdale, West Yorkshire)
  • Manchester
  • Norwich (2 bids)
