Bike Life

Bike Life is the UK’s biggest assessment of cycling in cities delivered by Sustrans in collaboration with seven major cities.

Inspired by the Copenhagen Bicycle Account, Bike Life is an assessment of city cycling development including infrastructure, travel behaviour, satisfaction, the impact of cycling, and new initiatives.
