Over 50 constituencies joined the inaugural workshop of Labour Cycles in Manchester. Leading councillors, academics, Chris Boardman, and Rachael Maskell MP outlined the imperative for action and practical steps Labour can make to improve communities.
It's not about bikes - It's about health for all, social justice and community
Labour Cycles is a constituted community of Labour members committed to ensuring that everyone has the ability to be involved in active travel.
We believe our communities need:
- Transport policy must be a driver of social justice and health for all
- Protected cycle infrastructure enables older people, the disabled, the young and more women to cycle daily
- Labour needs to make a commitment and deliver on active travel for the UK.

“I want to see safe and segregated provision delivered on Superhighway routes, quiet ways and in our town centres, as well as many more cycle storage and parking spaces”
