To ask Her Majesty’s Government what provision they have made to include disabled cyclists within the Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy.

The Government will work to increase awareness of both the use of cycles as a mobility aid and the need for discretion when implementing 'cyclist dismount' regulations in public areas, including stations.

We recently consulted on the draft Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy and as part of the consultation sought views on how to increase cycling and walking in typically under-represented groups, including disabled people. The Government is in the process of analysing responses to the consultation and will publish a Government Response later this summer.
