The Bicycle Advocacy Group (BAG) met with representatives from the Nottingham office of Sustrans. Sustrans is a UK-wide charity that has been focusing on sustainable transport for the last 40 years and was responsible from creating the National Cycle Network throughout the UK, which includes over 14,000 miles of cycle routes.

During this meeting, BAG gave a brief background of its work and the challenges that are faced in promoting the bicycle as a sustainable means of transport. Members of Sustrans were keen on helping BAG determine the best solutions and gave BAG a lot of information about their own work in Nottingham and in the UK.

Moreover, new ideas on how to promote sustainable and active transport in all levels of society were also suggested. BAG and Sustrans look forward to developing a strong working relationship in a bid to encourage the public, businesses and politicians to actively prioritise sustainable transportation.
