Dear Mr Norris
Your request for information on Cycling City
We have now considered your request for information and a copy of the
information is below.
Please find attached the list of the projects which form part of our
current 2009/10 CycleStoke programme. This year, Cycling England has
agreed a total spend of £2,500,900 for Stoke-on-Trent and this has been
matched, both in cash and in kind funding, to the value of £2,490,000.
The full CycleStoke team has been in post since April 2009. In this short
time period they have been working hard to ensure that the itemised
projects come to fruition by the close of March 2010. You may have already
seen some of the successful results that are being achieving through
increased coverage in the local media. Recent activity, for example, has
included the successful launch of the Port Vale match rides with an
average of 24 attendees per ride and the installation of over 200 new
school cycle storage spaces. At one school alone, Ball Green Primary, this
has resulted in an additional 67 pupils cycling to school on a regular
basis. However at this stage and as we progress we are collating the
results and we will ensure that these are publicised in the new year.
The CycleStoke budget did not make any contribution to CandyTV.
