Prestonians are being asked where they would like to see new cycle lanes in the city.Advertisement
Climate Action Preston are making cycling their key campaign this October as they join with Friends of the Earth’s week of action (5- 11 October).
They are calling on local and national government to plan and budget for a green recovery from coronavirus.
Campaigners have launched an interactive map which can be found here or seen below to add your ideas where new cycle lanes should be put or modified around Preston.
The group are appealing for you to get in touch on their website with any ideas of how Preston can be more green.
To get involved in their week of action you can swap a regular journey you take for a cycle ride instead, such as cycling to work.

The group are going to publish what happens in the week and want you to send in your selfies with your bike by tagging @PrestonAction, your MP, @prestoncouncil and @LancashireCC. You can use the hashtag #LetPrestonPedal.
The call comes as Lancashire County Council announced it was scrapping three temporary road closures in Preston, put in to encourage walking and cycling, and also placing all the pop-up cycle lanes – put in during the pandemic – under review due to a lack of usage.
