Department for Transport Cycling Delivery Plan



The FSEM with the Royal College of Physicians submitted its response to this consultation in November 2014. Our key points and recommendations were:


  • The plan should recognise the role of physical activity and cycling as a treatment, via exercise medicine, in both primary and secondary care, in addition to wider public benefits
  • Cycling should be promoted as one of the many ways to easily achieve the recommended levels of physical activity per week
  • The plan should encourage real behaviour change which will only be achieved if improved infrastructure is accompanied by removing social/economic barriers to participating in physical activity
