To support the creation of a proper connected cycle path that would enable cyclists of all ages to travel safely in both directions around the town centre throughout the day.
Currently it is both difficult and dangerous to cycle
continuously around Canterbury city (without getting off and
pushing the bike/crossing illegally in places/using pedestrian-only
access/taking major detours along roads significant distances away
from town). There is enough road space so that if one lane were
converted into a cycle lane in each direction this would have the
benefit of allowing everyone to cycle safely (including children,
tourists and older people), and discouraging car traffic on the
ring road. The climate crisis, biodiversity crisis and health
crises from pollution require that we go beyond
‘reasonable’ small steps outlined in the current air
quality plan to embrace more ambitious and necessary action, as
taking place in leading cities around the world.
