Our vision is that Portsmouth becomes the pre-eminent cycling city of the UK.
A city fit for the future: a healthy, safe, sustainable, prosperous city that people want to live in, to work in and to visit.
A city where we share spaces, co-operate with each other and treat one another with courtesy and respect.
