Cycle County Active County Oxfordshire
Cycle County Active County Oxfordshire brings together Government, local authorities, the professional sector and campaigners as the UK scales up to deliver decarbonisation, levelling up and inclusivity strategies.

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, which will cover the period 2022 - 2025.
