Cycling in Brighton and Hove more than doubles in ten years

The Argus: The Lewes Road Bike Train, launched in 2010, is one scheme encouraging Brighton people to cycle to work The Lewes Road Bike Train, launched in 2010, is one scheme encouraging Brighton people to cycle to work

Commuter cycling in Brighton and Hove has more than doubled in a decade according to the latest census figures. 

The figures show that the city has had one of the biggest rises in people aged 16 to 74 using bikes to get to work in the UK between 2001 and 2011. 

The total number in 2011 was 3,168 people cycling to work, and in 2011 it was 6,635, a rise of 109.4%

It was beaten only by London, where commuting cycling rose by 144%.  

Rachel Bromley, policy adviser for transport charity Sustrans, said: "These new figures are telling of the haphazard approach of many authorities to get with the times and improve provision for the increasing number of people wanting to cycle to work.

"The public demand is there and many urban councils have made good progress in training and infrastructure, as is shown by the outstanding urban cycling results. It shows when decision-makers put their minds into increasing cycling, real progress can be made."

British Cycling's campaigns manager, Martin Key, said: "The latest figures effectively highlight the positive impact financial and political commitments can make to growing cycling numbers in cities.

"Once again, the evidence is clear that sustained investment in cycling brings results for the cities that are willing to commit."

He went on: "More than two million people regularly cycle and our data shows that nearly two-thirds of people want to cycle more if protected space is provided.

"That is why we are working to convince politicians that reallocating existing funding to prioritise cycling is a no-brainer, not only for the nation's health but for our communities, environment and our economy."

Last week, The Argus reported that car ownership in Brighton and Hove has declined by 3% from 2004 to 2014. 

The census figures also showed that the numbers cycling to work declined in more than half (202 out of 348) of local authorities across England and Wales since 2001.

Taking into account the increase in working residents since 2001, the share of people cycling to work in 2011 remained virtually unchanged at 2.8%.

Cycling to work was most frequent among males and most common in Cambridge. It was least common in Merthyr Tydfil in South Wales.

The figures, released today, also show that across the country, people are travelling further to get to work but the number of commuters is falling as more staff work from home.

Based on Census statistics, the average distance travelled to work in England and Wales increased from 8.3 miles (13.4km) in 2001 to 9.32 miles (15km) in 2011.

Those living in the Midlands and south west England had the largest increase in average distance travelled between 2001 and 2011 - going an extra 1.36 miles (2.2km).

In 2011, commuters living in the east of England travelled furthest (10.34 miles/ 16.6km) while Londoners had the shortest average commutes - 6.83 miles (11km).

The number of people working mainly from home increased from 9.2% in 2001 to 10.0% in 2011, with a further 8% having no fixed place of work or working offshore.

As a result, only 81% made a regular commute in 2011 compared with 86% in 2001.

In both 2001 and 2011, men commuted further than woman. In 2001, 39% of males and 25% of females commuted more than 6.2 miles (10km ). By 2011, the rates of commuting such distances had increased to 42% for men and 30% for women.

With the exception of those living in London, workers in managerial and professional occupations were more likely to commute 12.4 miles (20 km) or more.

The difference with other occupation groups was not so noticeable for London residents, where skilled trade workers were most likely to commute 12.4 miles (20km) or more.

Full-time workers commuted longer distances in 2011 than their part-time counterparts. While 55% of part-time workers commuted less than 3.6 miles (5km), 38% of full-time workers did the same.

It would be nice to see the figures to support this article, but even 80% increase is not a lot when you only see about 20 in one day using the Lewes Road, and as the amount using bikes has remained at 2.8% of the Brighton residents, that tells me that all of the money spent on bike lanes was not wasted.
The rest of the article is a completely different set of facts as it is in regard of all commuters, bike, car, train even walking.

Hi, we've now got the figures and I've put them in the story - and in fact they show that the original 80% rise we were told is wrong, and it's actually 109.4%.

The total number in 2011 was 3,168 people cycling to work, and in 2011 it was 6,635, a rise of 109.4%

It is truly great that the amount of cycling has increased in Brighton & Hove.

Cycling brings many benefits for the cyclist and as the cyclists is not driving a car then there are many benefits for the city.

One of the benefits for cyclists is that their health is improved and their mood is improved.

We can see from the posts here from car drivers what a sad, angry and depressed lot they are.

If they were cycling they would be much happier people.

Well you started with the stereotypes!

The health benefits of cycling are just one of the reasons that encouraging cycling is government policy.

What are you babbling on about? Forced changed? Did give me that nonsense, nobody is being forced to do anything. But people at long last are being given reasonable choice.

Your democratically elected representatives have been happily voting for improving cycle facilities in the city for years. You might have noticed that the Green administration do not have a majority and can be voted out of office or policies thrown out at any time, but improvements for cycling are continually voted through. You may be unable to take advantage of the new infrastructure, but there are thousands that are and cycling will continue to increase in popularity.

Did give me that nonsense, nobody is being forced to do anything. But people at long last are being given reasonable choice. Your democratically elected representatives have been happily voting for improving cycle facilities in the city for years. You might have noticed that the Green administration do not have a majority and can be voted out of office or policies thrown out at any time, but improvements for cycling are continually voted through. You may be unable to take advantage of the new infrastructure, but there are thousands that are and cycling will continue to increase in popularity. I am pleased that so many are leaving the car behind and embracing a cheaper and far more healthy way of getting round the city. HJarrs

Shame none of them know how to abide by the rules of the road! Do cyclists even know what the highway code is? I have to laugh at the radio advert which says about sharing the roads and sharing the responsibility. How about cyclists sharing the cost? Do cyclists have to do a driving test, theory test, hazard perception test, have insurance, have breakdown cover and pay vehicle excise duty. Before they're allowed to use the roads surely cyclists should be made to jump through the same hoops as drivers.

Zzzzzzzzzzzz - same old clichėd anti-cyclist clap-trap!
More damage is caused to other cars and other drivers, pedestrians, cyclists, buildings, street furniture etc etc AND the environment by cars than is ever done by cyclists so it is not unreasonable that those with a car shoulder the vast vast majority of the resultant costs through some form of taxation and insurance!

Really? Why?

I've been driving for over thirty years. When I first started there was never such tension between cyclists and drivers. IMHO much of the current antipathy towards each other can be attributed to the rise of a tiny minority of militant, vocal cyclists that treat cycling as a political exercise. Often they appear not to be pro-cycling but anti-people and anti-cars, much like the green party.

There is only tension for the tiny minority of anti cycle, bus and pedestrian militant car drivers that post on this site. Most people I know that cycle also have driving licenses and own cars. They do not show a great deal of inner turmoil over which form of transport to use.

No they should not !
Cars are way more dangerous than bikes, just as lorries are more dangerous than cars. This principle is already applied in law, the test to obtain a car licence is less rigorous than that to obtain a HGV one.

I suppose we'll all just have to walk then when the oil runs out.
What about when they can harness nuclear fusion you idiot.... which will be well before oil runs out... or will you still be riding around with your corn on the cob shaped saddle firmly implanted in your dirtbox
We cannot harness man made nuclear fusion yet and maybe we never will, it is an enormous technical challenge. You may as well wait until the teleporter is invented, then all other forms of transport will be redundant
They are well on the way you idiot.
Why don't you keep your worthless opinions based on fiction to yourself and let the grown ups debate the important issues........ numpty
