Bicycle Commuter Numbers Up 17 Pct In England, Wales
Steady growth in cycle commuter numbers over the last decade has seen a 17 per cent rise in commuters switching to two wheels.
In England and Wales 760,000 now cycle to work, up from 650,000 in 2001.
The numbers have been gleaned from census data by Halfords, which cites British success at the Tour de France and Olympics as well as the Government's Cycle to Work scheme as key drivers behind the rise. Cycle to Work can now be used for cycle 'safety equipment' only, following confirmation from HMRC.
