"I have personally committed in the past to securing more investment for Southampton's cycle network, and we've been able to fulfill that promise with our 'People's Budget'."

"By accelerating savings and cancelling a vanity IT project, Southampton Liberal Democrats were able to find additional funds to spend on things that will have a clear beneficial impact on the citizens of Southampton, including our cycle network."

"Cycling is an excellent form of exercise, a wonderful hobby, and has the bonus effect of reducing the amount of vehicle journeys, and therefore harmful emmissions, when people cycle instead of using their car."

"I'm proud that my party are working hard to support cycling initiatives in Southampton."
