Cycling is on the Increase

"Government data published this morning confirms that in 2009 cycle use increased to the highest level in decades."

Hopefully this isn't a surprise to you because it certainly isn't to me. I mean, what's not to love about cycling?

  • It's fun.
  • It's easy.
  • It's inexpensive.
  • It's environmentally friendly.
  • It uses no fossil fuels.
  • It's great exercise.
  • It's a great activity for all ages.
  • It's a wonderful family activity
  • I could go on and on...
Bicycling is the perfect activity for any economy, but it is especially appropriate for this recession.

Anyway, the National Travel Survey shows that while biking is on the increase, "car use is steadily falling." Now that's double good news.
