The Government’s Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy, published in April 2017, summarised the Government’s overall strategy to make cycling and walking the natural choice for shorter journeys. The measures set out in the Strategy, such as the investment that is being made in improved cycle infrastructure, will help to increase all forms of cycling, including cycling on an electrically assisted pedal cycle (or “e-bike”). The Government’s Cycle to Work scheme can also be used to help with the purchase of e-bikes.
