David Cameron: The Conservative Party
We are fortunate in the UK to have no shortage of wonderful role-model cyclists: whether it is Chris Hoy, Sarah Storey, Bradley Wiggins, Laura Trott, Chris Froome, Lizzie Armistead, Chris Boardman or, maybe to a lesser extent, our own Boris Johnson! I want more people travelling by bike to realise our ambition to make the UK truly a cycling nation – but this is something we can only afford if we continue to secure a strong economy.

I will also champion a cycle highway across Witney. Currently there are too many barriers and bad junctions, but with a bit of creativity we can create a spine across town which will help through cycling but also connect families, schools and shops safely. I am a keen cyclist!
Clive Peedell: The National Health Action Party
I recently cycled around parts of our Witney constituency and am aware of the challenges on the roads. I am very happy to champion local initiatives such as the B4044 community path and also at a national level. It's good to see more support for multi-abilities in terms of bicycles, equipment and training becoming more widely available.
Stuart Macdonald: The Green Party
Funding: In its manifesto the Green Party will be calling for Â£30 per head to be spent on cycling and walking. The CTC appear to be some way behind this in terms of ambition. Safety: Supportive of fair and just traffic law, however, is safety not determined in large part by good design and its successful implementation? Would require more information on the measures before supporting them. Positive promotion: Supportive of promotion as a secondary measure; have there not been years of positive promotion for very little gain? Investment and good design are the primary requirements for people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to cycle regularly.
Andy Graham: The Liberal Democrats
I have been a cyclist and what great enjoyment, what fitness-wonderful pastime. Even better it contributes to the overall goal of a heathier nation and a safer nation provided we ensure more cycling tracks are built into the infrastructure of every development. We will do this by passing the Green Transport Act! Happy cycling!!!
