According to Cycling UK, around 42% of the UK's population over the age of five own a bicycle (2015) - that’s around 25 million people.
There are many reasons why cycling is a popular (whether it’s a sport, form of transport or a hobby), mainly because it has many health benefits and significantly reduces the rider’s carbon footprint.
