Cycling Zone

The case for investing in cycling is clear.  For every pound invested in cycling in the UK in 2010 there was an economic benefit of £19.  The health benefits from just a 10% increase in cycling to work could save the NHS £16.9m a year in Cornwall alone in addition to the safety, accessibility, social and environmental benefits that can be achieved.  Cornwall Council is working with a range of partners to make cycling investment integral to enhancing and regenerating our communities for all.  Highlights of this work include: a long standing and successful partnership with Sustrans; a £3.4m targeted investment delivering a quality cycle network for Bodmin: Cornwall’s first Cycle Town; community ownership of a cycle village scheme in St Agnes and the regeneration of Penzance starting with providing a high quality cycle link along one of its greatest assets, the bay.
