The Department for Transport have released the latest statistics on walking and cycling in England.
Updated: Mar 16
When adults cycled for over 2 hours, they were far more likely to be cycling for leisure rather than travel.
This statistical release presents information on walking and cycling in England using two main sources: the National Travel Survey (NTS) and the Active Lives Survey (ALS).
The NTS is a household survey of personal travel by residents of England travelling within Great Britain, from data collected via interviews and a one week travel diary.
The ALS is a household survey by residents of England, from data collected via a push-to- web survey.
Some key uses of the data include describing patterns in walking and cycling, monitoring trends in walking and cycling, and contributing to evaluation of the impact of policies.
