in which, for once, an MP doesn’t claim that “cycling is booming”

Hansard, 9 May 2006. Note the claim that off-road routes are not being taken into account in the statistics. I will have to look into that.

Mark Lazarowicz (Edinburgh North and Leith, Labour)??

I am aware that the figure for Britain may be a little misleading, as it does not take into account some of the increase in cycling on off-road routes. That is not included in the overall statistics. In some towns and cities, there has been notable success in increasing cycling's share of overall transport use. However,that must mean that it has gone down in other cities, towns and communities. The overall picture is still pretty clear.
