City of #York Council is encouraging people across the city to ‘Ride to Work’ this week as part of a national campaign to encourage cycling as part of the daily commute.

GreenParty_York_March2015 9

Cllr Lars Kramm, Green Party (Micklegate) cycles every day to work.

The campaign aims to get more people incorporating cycling into their lives, helping to keep them fit and healthy, reducing congestion and improving air quality.

 

By signing up to the national Love to Ride UK initiative, which runs Ride to Work Week, people can enter a monthly prize draw to win great prizes including a £500 city break or bike shop vouchers. Visit www.lovetoride.net/york for more information.

Councillor Lars Kramm, Green Party Councillor for Micklegate Ward cycles every day to work and to his council commitments. He said: “In a congested city like York it is so much more convenient and quicker to cycle. Going by car makes journey times unreliable and parking is so much easier. Cycling is one corner stone of our vision of a city with less traffic, better transport and healthy residents. We, the  Four Green Councillors want for example:

  • to ensure, that  everyone has a good local primary school within walking or easy cycling distance of where they live. Every school should be a good school
  • to ensure the Local Plan protects, expands and enhances natural green spaces that act as the city’s lungs, providing clean air, safe walking and cycling routes and preserve wildlife and habitat
  • to develop a strategy to create a ‘Dutch-style’ off-road cycle network throughout the city, building on existing off road routes and main roads to make day to day cycling a safe attractive norm for more residents
  • follow-up the introduction of a city-wide 20mph limit in residential areas with further engagement with local residents and schools (not done particularly well by the last Labour administration and not supported by the current LibDem-Conservative Coalition) to embed a low speed culture in the city, which is fundamental to encouraging more walking and cycling

Tracey Carter, who works for City of York Council, regularly cycles to work. She said: “Cycling to work is an easy way to keep fit and active, especially as I spend my working day in meetings or sitting at a desk. It’s quicker and more enjoyable than bus or car and easy to plan exactly how long my journey will take, because I know I won’t get stuck in traffic. I arrive feeling energised and it really does help to clear my head at the end of a busy day – even when it rains!”

Councillor Ian Gillies, Executive Member for Finance, Planning, Transport and Planning is Cllr Ian Gillies, said: “We all know that moving more is key to staying healthy whatever our age. Cycling to and from work or school is a great way to incorporate exercise into our hectic lives, while at the same time reducing congestion and improving air quality.”

The Ride to Work Week campaign is just one of a number of initiatives in York to encourage people to make ‘easy travel swaps’, walking or cycling where possible, rather than making all their journeys by car.
