The article cites a report from The Bicycle Association that indicated that expanding cycling even further could deliver up to 130,000 new jobs by 2030. This would represent 6.5% of the Government’s Green Jobs Taskforce goal of two million new roles.

It points out that cycling in Britain is a bigger employer than the steel industry, supporting 69,000 jobs ranging from technical positions to sales, training, administration, construction and delivery. It is estimated the sector delivers £7.5billion in economic value, including £1.2billion in direct economic benefits and tax, with a further £600million from cycle tourism, events and infrastructure.

Roles in the cycling industry, the article says, include cycle technicians, with an average salary of £31,000, bicycle designers and engineers, averaging £36,000, and local authority cycling leads, paying on average £45,000.
