Government effort to get schoolchildren cycling

News in Brief

The Government will redouble its efforts to get more children cycling to school, with an extra £15m funding to be spent on connecting schools to the National Cycling Network, and cycling proficiency tests to improve safety. Transport secretary Douglas Alexander said: "At ten to nine in the morning one in five cars are on the school run. By encouraging cycling, seemingly small choices can have big impacts - improving the health of children, tackling congestion and helping the environment."
