The objective of this guidance is to help make cycling attractive and accessible to everyone. Cycling can help people access the things they need: work, education, food, health services and recreation. Cycling can benefit physical and mental wellbeing and help reduce social and economic inequity. However, many people are currently excluded from cycling. Despite a large appetite from different demographic groups to start cycling, 85% of people aged over 65, 78% of disabled people, 76% of women, 75% of people at risk of deprivation and 74% of people from ethnic minority groups never cycle. 

This guide, developed by Sustrans, is a call for people working on and making decisions on cycling across the UK to ensure cycling is inclusive and helps address wider inequity within cities and towns. This report seeks to identify how cycling can be improved for everyone, whether that be through accessibility, guidance, policy, creating more inclusive spaces or through other potential avenues.
