To ask the Minister for Regional Development what improvements to cycling provision he aims to have in place before the start of the Giro Italia 2014.

Whilst there are no specific improvements planned for cycle provision in relation to the Giro Italia 2014 other than minor maintenance issues associated with the route, officials from my Department are fully engaged with officials in DETI to ensure the event is a success and its legacy will help to further promote cycling in Northern Ireland.
During 2013/14, my Department plans to provide around 4.5km of new cycle lanes.
