Initiatives taken by government to promote use of bicycles

PowerPoint Presentation:

As cycle is less space consuming, there are reduced parking woes. If promoted to increased levels, cycling can help in combating the global warming since there are no poisonous emissions while cycling; unlike while commuting by cars and motorbikes. Hence, it can prove to be an effective means of reducing the carbon footprint considerably. Then, there are health benefits of biking that allows the rider to stay fit and healthy. Travelling on yer bike is the perfect solution for many of the problems faced by commuters today. It’s a cheap, eco-friendly and fuel free means of transport. Moreover, it allows lessening the congestion from modern cities.

People today are more and more comfort loving. Even a bit of work seems an extremely tedious job. This attitude has considerably altered our lifestyle wherein, we have almost forgotten that walking and cycling are also means of travelling. The overarching attitude of today’s generation is to turn ON the car/motorbike and let’s go; irrespective of the distance that has to be travelled. As per the government surveys, around 50% of the journeys undertaken by cars are less than 6-8 Km in terms of distance. At a practical level, you can easily undertake such small journeys on foot or on yer bike thereby, contributing to make the environment a greener and healthier space. Owing to the innumerable benefits of using bikes as an alternative means of commuting, UK government is continuously promoting the use of bicycles.

PowerPoint Presentation:

For instance, the UK government has launched the cycle2work scheme for all the public sector and private sector employees which allow one to purchase a bike at comparatively reduced rates than the concurrent market prices. Plus, the employees can also save upon the taxes under this scheme. To ensure safety and security of bike riders, government also pushes National Standard for training to cyclists. This training can be given only by National Standard Instructors who themselves have taken training for doing so, as per National Standard Instructor Courses.

Bike abilty award is given to those who are trained for cycling as per national standards. The Local Sustainable Transport Fund is specifically set aside for local authorities to promote cycling in their respective regions. There is also the vision document by the Mayor that seeks to bring about a bicycle revolution in UK that would make biking an integral part of everyday life. Due to the push given to cycling by government, cycle hire services have become a big commercial hit in London and nearby suburbs. Almost all the leading bicycle stores in London offer both cycle hire services as well as cycle2work scheme for local commuters, apart from the regular sale of bicycles and bike repair services.
