Leicester has submitted a bid for a major programme to develop Electrically Assisted Pedal Cycle (EAPC) hubs.
Leicester City Council and Leicester-based sustainable travel specialist, Go Travel Solutions, have successfully progressed through the Expression of Interest stage. A full application has now been submitted to apply for a share of the £500,000 funding that the Department for Transport has made available for cities, rural areas and tourism hotspots in England, outside of London, to develop shared Electrically Assisted Pedal Cycle (EAPC) hubs.
Leicester will host a pioneering conference next year to promote cities that support cycling, walking and active lifestyles.
The Active City conference will be held at Curve from 18-20 May 2016, and will attract local, national and international delegates and speakers.
The conference is coming to the city following a proposal submitted by Leicester City Council and Leicester Shire Promotions.
