Focus on cycling (10.00 - 11.15am)

There has for some while been debate among road safety and active travel professionals about balancing the benefits of sustainable modes in terms of reducing air pollution and improving public health, with concerns about road safety. In addition, the current government review and casualty statistics make this a topical item. With this in mind, this session will comprise a series of presentations covering cycling-related topics.
