Cycling rates in Cambridge easily still highest in the UK

Cycle use statistics published by the Dft put Cambridge, unsurprisingly, top of the list.

Various media organisations have asked for our view, which is as follows:

"It is good to see Cambridge still well ahead in cycling league tables. The benefits to Cambridge's communities are huge.

With consistent but relatively small levels of investment (compared with other forms of transport investment), we could start to rival the cycling rates of cities in Denmark or the Netherlands.

Despite an increasing population, census figures show that car use in Cambridge has hardly risen in ten years.

Improved facilities for cycling will offer everybody the choice of healthy and active/sustainable ways of getting around, reducing congestion and pollution even further."
