This report provides practical and statistical guidance to local authorities and others on monitoring cycle use. It is based on tests of a range of survey techniques undertaken by local authorities in collaboration with TRL, as part of a study for the Charging and Local Transport Division of the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions. The report explains why monitoring cycle use differs from traditional traffic monitoring and outlines ways of avoiding some of the particular problems entailed, especially with regards to cycle counting techniques. Guidance is also provided on other types of survey technique, including origin/destination surveys and monitoring cycle use at schools, workplaces and in town centres. (A)
