Women are twice as likely to be put off cycling due to lack of confidence than men, a survey has revealed.
Ribble Cycles and YouGov surveyed over 1100 working Brits to determine if they cycled to work, and if not, why not. The study investigated the country’s attitude towards cycling to work, in order to help identify key areas which still need improvement.
From the study, a quarter of those who don’t cycle to work claim it’s owing to their lack of confidence as a cyclist – that concern applied to 34 per cent of women and only 15 per cent of men.
The results from the survey have provided valuable insight into the thoughts and attitudes of working Brits who both do, and don’t cycle. One of the most notable stats is that a staggering 87% of Brits don’t cycle to work, 9% do cycle, and 4% commute via other methods.
