Plymouth named UK’s most bike-friendly city

It may have a way to go before it rivals Amsterdam but Plymouth has been named as the UK's most bike-friendly city. Big cycling cities like London and Cambridge, however, languished in towards the bottom of the list.

Researchers ranked the cities on a range of criteria, including the numbers bike thefts, accidents, cycle routes and bike-repair centres. Despite the best efforts of the "cycling Mayor", the City of London came out at number 50, with Greater London in 56th, partly fuelled by the prevalence of bicycle theft.
