This report documents the results of a survey of potential users of bicycle racks on Anglia Railways trains. The racks were provided under the government's Cycle Challenge initiative. The main advantages and disadvantages are discussed, and recommendations made for those promoting the combination of bike and rail. The importance of walking is also noted and the concept of suitable cycling and walking distances discussed. The report concludes that the cycle racks, while not carrying large numbers of bicycles, can be considered successful for the interest they have attracted and their promotion of cycling as a mainstream activity.
