Those investing in road bikes may find it easier to get around thanks to a £1 billion programme of building new highways, announced today (December 5th).

The money was pledged by chancellor of the exchequer George Osborne, as part of a wider investment in new infrastructure.

New roads may also be good news for those driving out from the towns to the countryside to go walking, as it may shorten journey times and therefore enable people to spend more of the day in the great outdoors.

Institute of Advance Motorists chief executive Simon Best said everyone using the roads should be happy with the news, stating: "Cyclists, motorcyclists, car drivers, lorry drivers and bus and coach passengers should all welcome the £1 billion investment to our roads.

"Newer roads are safer and should cut journey times."

He also welcomed Mr Osborne's announcement that the 3p fuel duty rise, which was due to come in on January 1st, will be shelved until September.

This may also help keep down the cost of days out in the country.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801501603-ADNFCR
