Cycling

The Devizes Transport Strategy states that the preferred strategy includes the following measures for cycling:

  •  Implement a comprehensive, convenient and safe cycle network including parking at employment and retail sites and educational and leisure facilities
  • Cycle campaign (to include Bike It investment); and
  • Develop and promote safe routes from villages to Devizes.

This was written back in 2012 and whilst some progress has been made we are clearly some way from achieving these goals. As Wiltshire Council has now declared a Climate Emergency and set a target of 2030 for Wiltshire to be carbon neutral, Sustainable Devizes are keen to work with them in making cycling an everyday mode of transport for more people in the area.
