8 January 2016
Cycling advocates are welcoming news of more people cycling, and a fall in injuries.
Cycling Action Network spokesman Patrick Morgan says both numbers are moving in the right direction.
"Increases in cycling and a fall in injuries are consistent with the 'safety in numbers' effect. It appears that as more people cycle, it gets safer."
"More journeys made by bicycle eases congestion for those who need to drive."
