National Bike Week

National Bike Week (5 June – 11 June 2023) celebrates over 12,500 miles of national cycle routes in the UK.

On average in England and Wales there are just over 2,200 households per mile of national cycle route. Per home there is over 1 metre of cycle route in the South West and Scotland, compared to just 7cm in London.

Nearly half of the population in England aged 5+ own a pedal bike, with ownership rates highest for those aged 5–10, 11–16 and 40–49. Commuting and leisure are the main reasons for cycle journeys.

More than one in ten renters who live with friends or in a house share would be prepared to pay extra for secure bike storage.

With 4.5 million miles cycled each year, cycling accounts for around 1% of all traffic mileage on Britain's roads. Source: Dataloft, Ordnance Survey, Sustrans, Cycling UK, National Travel Survey, Property Academy Renter Survey 2022
