A former professional cyclist is increasing pressure on the government to fulfil pre-election promises to turn Britain into a cycling nation.
Chris Boardman, who is British Cycling's policy advisor, has invited the Transport Minister Robert Goodwill to Copenhagen to witness first hand how important cycling infrastructure can be.
In a speech later today, Boardman will argue that Mr Goodwill, who he describes as a "good friend of cycling," must fulfil pre-election promises and deliver "meaningful progress".
Boardman will say:
The Olympic medallist and winner of three Tour de France stages will say that for a small investment "the government can solve so many issues...including obesity, pollution and congestion. It really is a no-brainer."
He and the Transport Minister will speak to an audience of 400 people at an Active City Cycle City Conference.
