Considerate Cycling 22 : Car vs Bike since the year I was born

That’s it. A graph based on the Department for Transport’s recently published  statistics. I am very interested in the ways that people might respond to it. Please leave a comment to let me know what it tells you.

  1. Interesting graph that raises a few points, I think what the graph tells me is that cars can be useful for longer journeys because you can travel further than a comparative time on a cycle, but if the journey was in a city the cycle would get through traffic quicker and be more practical IMO, so stats would be reversed.
    I don’t think the graph tells the whole story, I’m not sure if the decision making for each journey someone takes, making them decide on mode of transport could be put in a graph but it would be interesting.
    Maybe the graph doesn’t say that the red line contains many a short journey and the blue line contains fewer longer journeys.
