The Cycle To Work Race
You’ll never believe which city won the ‘cycle to work race’ between 2001 and 2011…
…actually, if you’ve ever seen Boris Johnson on the telly with his cheeky grin and bicycle helmet, you probably will believe it. Yes, that’s right: Inner London – the heart of England’s traffic-soaked capital city – actually had the biggest overall increase in number of people cycling to work between 2001 and 2011.
According to a 2014 publication by the Office of National Statistics, the number of people in London aged 16 to 74 who were cycling to work more than doubled between 2001 and 2011, with a massive 144% increase for residents of Inner London (only a 45% increase for Outer London).
London was closely followed by Brighton and Hove, then Bristol, Manchester and Newcastle Upon Tyne.
So, why is the number of cyclists in the UK increasing at such a rapid rate? Is it all down to famous London Mayor Boris Johnson, or do you think there are other influences afoot (or would that be ‘awheel’? I’ll see myself out). Let us know in the comments below.
