Someone recently posted a league table of % journeys by bike in various towns.

Some frustrating Googling has failed to shake it from the woodwork.

Can some kind soul repost it for me.

TIA

Tony

Many thanks!

I wonder if that question was asked in the 2001 census. Must check.

It's interesting that Cambridge, York and Oxford came out on top for cycling to work? Do you think
the ONS believes that students work? :)
