Further insights are offered into how UK cycling policy, as promoted in the National Cycling Strategy, can be translated into cycling practice, for example through encouraging a modal shift from the motor car to cycling. The extent of UK motor car dependency, the viability of cycling as an alternative transport mode, and possible measures to achieve a modal shift are discussed. Segments of the population who cycle or who might be encouraged to cycle are considered, incorporating Scottish Household Survey data for Edinburgh.
