Members of both houses of parliament will attend an e-bike panel event in Portcullis House on Monday 12th March. The event is being organised jointly by the All-Party Parliamentary Cycling Group and the Cycle to Work Alliance.
The event will be chaired by chair of the APPCG Ruth Cadbury MP and she will introduce talks from Brompton CEO Will Butler-Adams (the company has a new e-bike version of its iconic folding bike); Cycle Solutions director Steve Edgell, who is chair of the Cycle to Work Alliance; and Laura Dyett, senior project manager for behavioural change at Transport for London.
The experts will be discussing the policy actions necessary to stimulate the electric bike market.
Straight after the panel discussion there will be a bums-on demonstration of e-bikes on Birdcage Walk.
The APPCG runs regular cycling-themed events for its parliamentarian members. Recent events have included women in cycling and a prize-giving presentation for the officers involved in the West Midlands Police Force’s Operation Close Pass.
