3 Cycling for Health
Climate change is the biggest threat to continuing human life on this planet followed by the battle against blubber.
Wolverhampton is sadly a major player in the Obesity epidemic and the venue of choice for BBC Midlands today to report on the related issues.
Cycling is the best form of aerobic exercise that is non-load bearing on the joints. It's also a useful form of travel, cheap, pollution-free and visually stimulating.

6 Design Guides
This section contains design guidance on cycle-friendly infrastructure,Â cycling on the highway and streets for people.
Â Documents held on this website and links to others on their own host site are used.Â
Will these get read by local decision makers ? Let's hope that people designing and altering the Wolverhampton cycle network [ie all roads except motorways plus cycleways] include practical pedal cycle use in their designs. One side of Road Safety Section teaches vehicular cycling to the National Cycle Training Standards after all.Â
Or do they really wish to win a WoWcc Chocolate Chain Ring or the shame of a Warrington Cycle Campaign Facility of the Month award ?
Cycling deserves theÂ best it can get for vehicular cycling and for nervous shared-use cycling to thrive.

7 Infrastructure Lists
If you're an official of WCC and you want some project ideas to help cycling in the borough look in here! Don't waste precious money on advisory cycle lane paint and signs just because it's nearing the end of the budget year when you could create much needed cycle parking and shortcuts!!
More 1.1 metre wide cycle lanes in Wolverhampton only make conditions worse and show a complete lack of imagination. Measures that give convenience, advantage and means of promoting Vehicular Cycling per the National Cycle Training Standards (taught by WCC's own cycling instructors) are the class of work we're seeking.
