The Coalition Government has done a huge amount to encourage and support cycling in England. Since 2010, we have provided over £277m of funding directly for cycling, almost twice that provided by the previous administration, and have allocated £600m to the Local Sustainable Transport Fund, where 94 out of the 96 projects include a cycling element. I champion cycling within Government and work closely with local authorities, cycling groups and Ministers across Whitehall to encourage more people to cycle more safely, more often.
