NI Cycling Strategy - Second Report - 2007

Read document description

The Northern Ireland Cycling Strategy (NICS), launched in June 2000, was a building block to encourage and facilitate a more sustainable way of travelling. The first report on progress on the NICS was published in 2002. A further five years has passed and this, second, report monitors progress and highlights opportunities to improve and consolidate the future delivery and implementation of measures to support cycling. The NICS set out a number of actions to try and arrest years of decline in cycling in NI. Local cycling strategies are in place in some Council areas and the inclusion of cycling is now mainstream in government strategies and plans. Increasing cycle usage requires good planning, the construction of new routes, good maintenance of routes, supported by marketing activities. No one organisation can perform all these tasks and the fostering of good local partnerships, to help co-ordinate the delivery of these activities, is essential. Local Cycle Forums bringing together Roads Service, Planning Service, Local Councils, Cycling Users Groups, Sustrans and Cycle NI have been effective.
