This good news was carried on this site some months ago but a caveat was added: they were only provisional figures, yet to be confirmed.

Yesterday, the DETR confirmed them.

Statistics Bulletin (00)20 Road Traffic Statistics: 1999 gives the results of the DETR's National Traffic Surveys for 1999 and updates the road traffic figures published last year.

The bulletin says: Pedal cycle traffic rose 6% between 1998 and 1999, compared with an average fall of 4% per year from 1995 to 1998.

The bulletin will shortly be available in PDF format at: http://www.transtat.detr.gov.uk/.../index.htm

Theres tons of other transport stats including the 1 percent rise in car use (a slight slowing down).
