British Cycling has appointed Adrian Lord to be its first infrastructure expert. He will advise on how to design cycle friendly cities, including cycle-proofing road layouts, junctions and route design.

British Cycling’s Director of Policy and Legal Affairs, Martin Gibbs, said:

“The fact that British Cycling has brought its own infrastructure expert on board is a sign of how seriously we’re taking the government’s cycling ambitions. We recognise that the key to transforming our villages, towns and cities into cycle-friendly environments – and in turn getting millions more people on bikes - is totally about getting it right on infrastructure."

Lord said:

“I want to help encourage local authorities and planners to make the right decisions on how to design their roads and junctions with cyclists in mind.

“Cycle proofing isn’t just about making the roads safer for cyclists, it’s about creating routes that are convenient for cycling with an appropriate level of segregation on links and of priority at junctions.

"A well-designed route is intuitive - drivers will automatically adjust their speed, all users will know when to give way and when they have priority. Properly designing towns and cities for cyclists would have an immeasurable impact on everyone in the country creating more pleasant and sustainable places to live.”

Lord has been a transport consultant for over 18 years and has headed up projects for Cycling England and the Department for Transport. Lord participates in road, time trials, mountain bike and cyclo cross events.
