In 2011, the proportion of commuters who usually cycled to work or study in Glasgow was low, 1.6%, equating to 5,228 people.  Levels of cycle commuting varied substantially (in relative terms) across Glasgow's neighbourhoods from 0.3% in Blackhill & Hogganfield (with less than 10 cyclists) to 4% in Kelvindale & Kelvinside (with nearly 250 cyclists). 


The data shown above is from the 2011 Census.  

It is clear that the length of commute will have an impact on how many people cycle to work or study.

A recent GCPH report, Pedestrian and cyclist casualty trends in Scotland, as well as providing a detailed analysis of casualty trends, outlines trends in modes of travel to work and study in Scotland (see Chapter 4 and Appendix A).
