We are Just Ride the Bike.
Statistics, research and reports
We are passionate about helping more people to ride bikes more often. To do this we need to tell people about infrastructure developments; councils need to know how cycling paths are being used; we need to show people great kit; we need to gather facts and figures that will convince others to ride.
This page brings facts and figures together. It's almost impossible to stay on top of them all. We corral as many as we can here, (we aren't responsible for them) but if we've not got yours on here, just let us know: firstname.lastname@example.org.
