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.

By encouraging cycling, seemingly small choices can have big impacts – improving the health of children, tackling congestion and helping the environment.”
