Cyclescheme is the UK's most popular cycle to work benefit, creating more cyclists than any other provider.

Review into the progress made towards achieving the goals of the Gear Change walking and cycling plan.

In May 2020 the government announced that they would be investing £2 billion to support walking and cycling in England. In the past 12 months, cycling in England has risen by 46% - the biggest increase in 20 years.

In 2021 alone, the government has pledged a £338m budget for active travel. This includes the upgrade of the National Cycle Network, new guidance for Local Authorities, an update to the Highway Code and an e-bike pilot programme. 

The data clearly shows how the encouragement of cycling could reduce our carbon footprint – the report even suggests that Council funding will be cut if individual areas are not actively supporting the proposed travel plans.

Notably, retail cycle spend is up by 45%, taking the annual total to £2 billion. E-bikes are quickly growing in popularity taking a 12% share of the market – a 67% rise YoY.
