16. How many cycles are sold in Great Britain? Most of the figures for cycle sales and other market data are published in reports for which there is a charge, for example: • •
Mintel Conebi (Confederation of the European Bicycle Industry) - (the last free report from Conebi covered 2016).
Alternative sources are: • BikeBiz • Bicycle Association
17. What's the average weekly household spend on bikes? Obviously, how much each household spends on transport varies widely, but on average, it's around £80.80 a week. Only a tiny amount of this goes on bicycles - not needing to buy fuel is, of course, a big saving.
