UK cycling networks to get spending boost of more than £200m
Deputy prime minister will announce scheme to build on momentum of 2012 Olympics and British leg of Tour de France
More than £200m will be spent on encouraging cycling in an attempt to make Britain a nation that loves its bicycles like Denmark and the Netherlands, Nick Clegg, the deputy prime minister, will say on Thursday.
The Liberal Democrat leader will reveal the fund at a cycling summit in Bristol in a move he will hope appeals to his party’s natural support base, many of whom have switched to Labour or the Green party since 2010.
