The data, which analysed sentiment from over 6,000 UK sports enthusiasts, reveals which cities across the UK are the most, and least, cycle friendly. The research found that London is among the worst cities for cycling while the city of Newcastle has ranked the best.
54% of London cyclists surveyed stated aggressive drivers in the capital as a reason they don’t feel safe on the roads, closely followed by drivers in Brighton and Hove (50%), Glasgow (49%), Leeds (49%) and Liverpool (49%). Welsh drivers are thought to be the friendliest, with just 24% of Aberystwyth cyclists feeling concerned about inconsiderate drivers.
