Basic message – cycling to work stayed static between the 2001 and 2011 censuses, but this masked substantial changes in some areas – generally up in urban and down in rural – a pattern which Spokes had previously identified in the 1981->1991->2001 censuses.   Note this report [2013] of a similar pattern in Denmark http://politiken.dk/indland/ECE2063886/vi-cykler-mindre—uden-for-storbyerne/ [use the Google translate button].

Speculation – this may reflect differential changes in land-use patterns and road conditions but may additionally be related to levels of cycling investment.
