Department for Transport report: Cycling's modal share continues nationwide slide

This report is a difficult one to get your head around. Essentially it says that 2% of trips in the UK are made by bike. With that low share, I can see why the case for improving infrastructure hasn't been a priority, BUT my thinking is that if things are easy to do, people will do them! If we had the infrastructure in the UK that matched the likes of London and wider Europe, more people would get on the bike. It's hard to know how to buck the trend, but what we can do to increase cycle commuting is something worth looking at going into next year.
