"I have written a blog on the topic of cycling levels, using evidence from Super Tuesday, Journey to Work and the annual cordon counts, as well further analysis of the Cycling Participation Survey.  You can find the blog here."

"Maybe the NSW numbers shouldn't be ignored. The ridiculous fines introduced in 2016 are bound to discourage cycling. Who knows? The decline may well be worse than that suggested by the survey - errors can cut both ways."
