Katja Leyendecker spoke to MPs at the House of Commons as a witness to the Transport Select committee.
Katja Leyendecker, chair of the group, says “It's been both a nerve-racking and exhilarating experience. I think I got my point across, that the real debate is about better cities, and we have to start taking cycling seriously as a cornerstone of a liveable and resilient city. We must end its silent absence and build cycleways. And I seem to have found a convert and ally in one MP too, who said it was good that I kept the session on track.”
