Britain on a bike
  • It’s FREE to have a basic advert on Beds for Cyclists and it only takes a few minutes to set up. Give your business a real boost by letting cyclists across the UK, know you are there.
  • The National Cycle Network is a 13,000 mile network of signed, established cycle routes across the UK which has been growing at a rapid rate since its birth in 1995. However there isn’t currently a website that provides a comprehensive accommodation listing near the National Cycle Network. From St Davids to the Norfolk Broads, from Lands End to John O’Groats, from urban centres such as London and Edinburgh to rural gems like the Chilterns and the Black Mountains, these routes seeing more cyclists each year. The Sea to Sea route for instance, carried 241,000 journeys in 2006. Sustrans, the charity behind the National Cycle Network, have recorded year on year growth for the past eleven years and and estimated that 408 million journeys were made in 2009. See graph below showing NCN usage. This is inevitably resulting in a greater demand for places to stay near the network which Beds for Cyclists facilitates.
  • The growth in use of the National Cycle Network is not the only evidence behind cycling’s increasing popularity in the UK. In 2010 the UK cycle industry contributed £2.9 Billion into the UK economy according to research carried out by the London School of Economics.
  • The study not only showed a 28% increase from the previous year’s bike sales to 3.7 million bikes, but also that these cyclists have significant disposable incomes spending on average £439 per bike. Cyclists make up a wealthy demographic in the UK and it’s not only bikes that money is spent on.
  • A European study into the benefits of cycle tourism found that cyclists spend on average 53 Euros per day. 40% on accommodation, 30% on food and beverages and the remaining 30% on various other expenditures. As touring cyclists ourselves, we fully understand the importance of a good night’s sleep and a good feed after a day in the saddle. This is why we believe Beds for Cyclists, which provides such vital information, will become a permanent fixture for cyclists across the UK.
