We encourage cycling as a sustainable means of transport by:
- promoting cycling as a valuable part of a sustainable integrated transport system;
- contributing to design advice and requesting cycle facilities to be included in new developments and highway schemes where appropriate;
- publishing free cycle route maps for Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds and Lowestoft;
- supporting cycling events for example national bike week;
- where funds allow, providing 'missing links' in the strategic cycle route network for example cycle lanes, cycle tracks (shared-use paths), signalled crossings and cycle parking;
- working with colleagues to provide a more 'cycle-friendly' street environment, for example by speed reductions (especially 20mph zones), 'home zones', safe routes to school.
