The Government’s Active Lives Survey, carried out annually by Sport England, suggests that in the period from mid-November 2016 to mid-November 2017, 13.6% of adults cycled at least once a week within Stroud District Council; 14.7% cycled at least once a week in Gloucestershire; and 11.9% cycled at least once a week in England. The survey includes any cycling, irrespective of trip length or purpose, and results are grouped according to the area where respondents live, which may not be the same as the area where they walk or cycle.
