To ask the Minister for Regional Development how his Department measures the number and percentage of people cycling; and to detail the latest figures.

The Travel Survey for Northern Ireland (TSNI) contains information on the percentage of people who have cycled in the last 12 months, broken down by age and gender.
Currently available information is provided in Table 5.4 of the TSNI In-depth Report (2009-2011) which can be found at:
Detailed information on survey methodology, data quality and guidance on using the data can be found in the User Information section of the In-depth Report while definitions and survey notes are included in Appendix A.
A separate Technical Report is published annually which provides greater detail on the survey methodology and this can also be found at the link above.
