If not now, when?
Prospects for a cycling revolution in 2012-13 – Bruce McVean, Principal Consultant at Beyond Green http://www.beyondgreen.co.uk/ and Founder of Movement for Liveable London http://movementforliveablelondon.com/ will consider whether 2012 will mark a turning point for mass cycling in the UK. A national media campaign to make our cities fit for cycling, mass protests in London and Edinburgh and (hopefully) Olympic success will make this a big year for cycling. But how can we ensure headlines lead to meaningful change rather than just a flurry of fine words and photo opportunities?
