Going Going Bike

Jan 072011

Some great news from Australia where bike industry figures have revealed that bicycles have been outselling cars for each year of the past decade by over 2,000,000. Over 11.5m bikes were sold in that time.

According to Australia’s bicycle industry trade group, the Cycle Promotion Fund, in 2010, over 1.3m bikes were sold. These figures represent a 12% increase from the previous year and a 67% increase from 2001.

The sales of bicycles are supported by figures released by the Australian Government indicating a 32% increase in people choosing to ride a bike in the same period.

Australia’s government has recently released its National Cycling Strategy 2011-2016. The strategy aims to double the rate of Australians cycling by 2016.
