Potential for e-cargo bikes to reduce congestion and pollution from vans in cities
The Bicycle Association commissioned Transport for Quality of Life to produce three reports developing the evidence base on the contribution of cycling to Britain’s industrial strategy.
The reports calculate that the bicycle industry is worth £5.4 billion per year to the UK economy once wider impacts and the value to tourism are added to sales of £0.7 billion per year. They show that if UK adopted better policies and support for e-bikes and e-cargo bikes, as in other countries, further major benefits could be realised.
