The fundamental purpose of a Cycle Audit is to identify whether the overall design is cycle-friendly and the specific measures to assist cyclists, are designed in accordance with best practice.

A Cycle Audit is a systematic process, applied to planned changes to the transport network, which is designed to ensure that opportunities to encourage cycling are considered comprehensively and that cycling considerations are not inadvertently made worse.

 

 

The fundamental purpose of a Cycle Audit is to identify whether the overall design is cycle-friendly and the specific measures to assist cyclists, are designed in accordance with best practice. 

It is essential that a good cycling infrastructure is achieved wherever possible, in relation to its coherence, directness, attractiveness, safety and comfort.  Any issues that are identified within the audit are to be addressed during the design process.
