A million miles milestone for CityBikes

LIVERPOOL is all about pedal power as latest figures show that CityBikes have travelled a million miles around the City.

Since the scheme launched in May 2014:-

204,899 bikes have been hired.

49,964 people have subscribed to sign up to the initiative.

More than 25,000 users have rented the bikes around 8 times.

The average time people spend on the bikes is around 38 minutes, covering 8 miles within that time .

This news comes as the latest 2015/16 cycling rates have been released for Liverpool which show that during this period, there has been a rise of 10.2% in people getting on their bikes. Cabinet Member responsible for Transport, Councillor Malcolm Kennedy, said:- "We always knew the Citybike scheme would be popular, but to hit the million miles landmark a little over 2 years after launching the initiative is staggering. There is a real mass appeal of our green bikes; whether it's tourists exploring the City, residents getting out and about or business people using them to get from A to B there is a huge variety or users who are making the most of this value for money service. With stations located across the City and 1,000 bikes, we're confident the scheme will go from strength to strength; so here's to the next million miles!"

Mayoral Lead for City Wellbeing and champion for promoting cycling in the city, Councillor Tim Beaumont, said:- "As a City we take cycling extremely seriously and our aim is to be the fastest growing City for cycling in the UK by 2026, which will in turn improve people's health and wellbeing. We want to ensure there are no barriers when it comes to people taking up cycling, and CityBike is a great example of this as it's an easy and hassle free way to travel around the City. I'm sure the scheme will go continue to be hugely popular and will help us achieve our cycling goals over the next few years."
