Not just here in London that cycling has taken off, the Irish cycle to work scheme has seen membership increase by 125% in just 12 months.

A survey carried out by shows Cycle to Work Scheme participation has increased by 125% since 2009.

While bike shops have reported an average of 43% of bike sales coming through the scheme.

And, just under half (49%) of bike scheme sales are coming from public sector employees.

Now that is good news, I might have to go over and visit one of these days with my bicycle :)
