Roger has for many years been at the forefront of persuading the UK’s politicians, the media and the wider public of the need for action to improve cycling conditions.
Roger’s involvement in cycle campaigning began as a volunteer with the London Cycling Campaign (LCC) in the late 1980s. He soon branched out into other transport and environment groups, including anti-road campaigns in the mid-1990s. With the subsequent shift in national transport policy, he took a masters in Transport at London University and began working for Oxfordshire County Council on walking, cycling and local transport policies.
After a spell with consultants Steer Davies Gleave, he joined Cycling UK as Campaigns & Policy Manager (now Policy Director) in 2002. He was awarded an MBE for services to cycling in 2015.
