The Department does not hold this information. The Bicycle Association, however, which is the national trade association for the UK cycle industry, collects data from retailers across the country, covering around two-thirds of the cycling market. Its most recent market update suggests that retailers have seen sales growth increase by 60% since March 2020 with sales of e-bikes more than doubling.
