Space for Cycling and fresh expert advice on Designing for Cycling

Just when you want some fresh ideas on Space for Cycling and guidance for design infrastructure then three of them turn up at once!  They are complementary and designed for slightly different audiences.

2. There is also a much beefier booklet, Making Space for Cycling, written on behalf of CycleNation by the Cambridge Cycle Campaign for highway engineers and transport planners

3. Sustrans have produced a Handbook for Cycle Friendly Design which is a detailed set of advice and guidance for design of roads to cater for cyclist in urban and rural settings.  It’s so good it is amazing that it is free!
