Asking the Government to remove rigid Whitehall rules on the number of new cycle lanes would free us to spend money where and when it is needed, allowing us to improve safety training in school for example.

There needs to be a complete rethink about how the city functions. Not only will fuel prices continue to increase but we have been living in a city overrun by cars for too long. The car is not an efficient way to move around the large number of people we need to move around in Cambridge.

(Liberal Democrat)

In Summer and Autumn I run Greenwheels Pedicab Tours, which provides environmentally friendly guided rickshaw tours and short trips around the city and the backs of the colleges. This means that I am very aware of the cycling situation in town. I also work as an electric-bike traffic reporter for Star Radio, which means that I understand the traffic-cycling interface in Cambridge and the surrounding roads. If I am elected this knowledge would serve me well when working on transport problems.
