The Bureau of Transport Statistics have released the 2011 Sydney Cycling Survey.
The results were very encouraging, with significant increases in the number of people who reported riding a bicycle in the past week, month or year. In particular, the number of people reporting that they have ridden a bicycle in the past week increased from 11.9% in 2010 to 18% in 2011.
This 50% growth in the number of people who rode in the past week indicates that there are many people who have changed from occasional bicycle users to more regular bicycle users. This is an excellent result that suggests that we are achieving a real shift in behaviour patterns that will contribute to the realisation of the many Benefits of Cycling.
