One in a million

New Department for Transport statistics show a surge in cycling activity in 2008, from 4.2 billion km (2,609 million miles) in 2007 to 4.7 billion km (2,920 million miles).

If they are right, then that's a 12% increase, and the longest total distance cycled in the UK since 1990.

I did my bit. I contributed 3,000 miles: just over one millionth.

Update: CTC has a summary here which also points out that cycling deaths have fallen.
