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.
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 CWIS2, which covers the period 2022 - 2025.
"Active travel is good for the environment, our economy and public health. IT’s one of the best return on investment decisions governments can make. Our aim is that 50% of all journeys in towns and cities should be walked, wheeled or cycled by 2030."

CEO, Active Travel England
Cycle County Active County is the UK's established and premier networking event for public and private sector professionals tasked with enabling, designing, implementing and improving provision for active travel, and embedding its use for more short journeys and more parts of longer journeys.
