Welcome to
Cycle County Active County Oxfordshire

Cycle County Active County Oxfordhire brings together Government, local authorities and the professional sector as they respond urgently to scale up decarbonisation, levelling up and inclusivity strategies.

Cycling and walking can deliver against all three areas, and as such are in the spotlight like never before.

The groundwork is in place: 2022 established Active Travel England to take forward the commitments laid out in Gear Change, the Transport Decarbonisation Plan and the forthcoming CWIS2.
