There is strong backing in Britain for more cycling infrastructure, with support firm across all ages, political backgrounds, social classes and commuter types, according to new data from British Cycling.
The findings come from a major YouGov poll carried out for British Cycling. The main results, released last month, showed 71% of Britons back building cycle lanes on main roads, against just 18% who oppose this.
However, new analysis from the poll findings show how broad this support is. There was at least 50% support for more bike lanes among all types of commuter – car, public transport, cycling or walking – even if the theoretical bike route might cause a five minute delay on their journey to work.
