Tell MPs to boost cycle cash at government showcase

The All-Party Parliamentary Group for Cycling and Walking's (APPGCW) first showcase event will take place on 11 February, at the Attlee Suite in Portcullis House from 9:30am to 11:30am. Velocity readers are invited.

"We are hoping that 40 to 50 MPs and Peers will attend this drop-in event," said APPGCW project manager Adam Coffman. "Cycling and Walking Minister Chris Heaton-Harris MP (pictured) and Shadow Cycling and Walking Minister Matt Rodda MP, are both confirmed to attend and speak during the event."

The showcase, which the APPGCW hopes will encourage the new government to put more money into cycling, was revealed by Velocity last November. Exhibitors include:

Beyond the Bicycle Coalition, The Bikeability Trust, Brompton, CoMoUK, Conservative Cycle Campaign, Cycle to Work Alliance, Cyclehoop, Dutch Cycling Embassy, Halfords, HSBC, Labour Cycles, Tour of Britain and the Walking and Cycling Alliance
