38 million bikes

There is estimated to be a staggering 38 million unused bikes in the UK according to research by YouGov and the Bike Club.

That’s enough for every other person in the UK and is a very startling number!

It’s definitely more than enough to fill the current shortfall in demand.

The research also shows that while 15% of the UK’s adults are estimated to have one unused kids’ bike, 34% have an unused adult bike at home. 9% have more than one unused kids’ bike, meaning it’s estimated there are over 12.5 million unused kids’ bikes and 38 million dormant bicycles in total. The most common reason for having an unused bike was ‘it’s too much hassle to sell’.

Thanks to the Bike Club for the snazzy graphic.
