Integration of Cycle Trips with light and heavy rail is of vital importance. A cycle trip of up to five miles coupled with either parking at the station or onward cycle carriage brings huge opportunities for travel.

The paper concentrates on cycling routes to the station and on cycle parking including a Leicester-style Bike Park .
