Save the Date - Cycling Embassy Virtual AGM, 31st July 2020

Our AGM this year is, of necessity, going to be radically different. 

Rather than our usual face-to-face meetings and Infrastructure Safaris in one city, we are going online, with Virtual Infrastructure Safaris, taking a look at the new pop-up cycling infrastructure that is appearing in response to the Covid-19 crisis.

How could it be improved?

Insert Loved One Here - Valentine's Day Special

Last year the Embassy launched the Insert Loved One Here image creator - a tool designed to shine a light on poor or dangerous cycling environments, asking whether we would want our loved ones cycling in them.

To celebrate Valentine's Day, we've updated the tool, allowing you to show love for genuinely good cycling infrastructure - places where you really would want loved ones to cycle.
