Statistics on cycling in Edinburgh
Results of the Bike Life survey 2017
We are one of seven cities in the UK working with UK-based active travel charity, Sustrans, to report on the state of cycling in our city.
Bike Life is a survey that began in 2015 and was inspired by work being undertaken in Copenhagen to continually improve cycling conditions.
In Edinburgh, the results showed that
- over half of those surveyed own at least one bicycle at home
- levels of cycling have risen significantly since 2010
- a large proportion of people agree that more cycling is good for our city.
Within Edinburgh there are 192 miles of all bike routes and 100 miles of traffic-free cycle routes.
