Bad weather led to a 2% drop in cycle journeys between 1999 and 2000, the Department of Transport, Local Government & the Regions said this week. Next year's figures are expected to see a greater fall due to cycle trails closed during the foot and mouth crisis. The Cyclists' Touring Club (CTC) blamed peak hour cycle bans on trains, charges for taking bikes on trains and the requirement for cyclists to reserve train places.
