Exeter has been declared the second best city for cyclists, a new study has revealed.

Exeter scored good points for good air quality, cycling and walking statistics according to the survey by law firm True Solicitors.

Exeter was pipped into first place by Lancaster but fared much better than big cities London and Manchester, who came bottom of the rankings.

According to the study, 21% of the Exeter’s population regularly cycled more than once a week in 2018. Both Lancaster and Exeter were one of six locations in England selected to promote cycling as a mode of transport back in 2005.

Cllr Rachel Sutton, Lead Councillor for Climate & Culture, said: “This is welcome news. It’s great to see that people in the city are turning to alternative methods of transport and doing their bit for the environment.

“However we recognise that there is still much to do to make cycling in Exeter safer and more accessible to everyone and will be working closely with our partners to achieve this.”
