About the Cycle Rail Awards
The Cycle Rail Awards has become an annual event to recognise how everyday cycling to local rail stations has become a great rail industry success story. Since 2012 more than 80,000 additional cycle parking spaces have been introduced at stations across England. This has provided high quality and secure cycle parking for passengers travelling from over 700 rail stations.
Each year approximately 50 million rail journeys are now made involving a bike, showing the increasing demand for smarter travel options.
The rail industry is working hard to get more people to access the network by bike, installing new cycle parking at most stations and working with partners to improve cycle access to those stations.
Sustrans and the Cycle Rail Working Group are delighted to support these continued efforts to get the population more active (thereby reducing avoidable calls on the NHS), to reduce carbon emissions and to tackle local poor air quality whilst easing traffic congestion.
