Birmingham's streets were graced with pedal-powered councillors on September 28 as elected members participated in a city centre ride in order to promote cycling and healthy lifestyles.

The cross-party show of support for sustainable transport comes as the City Council releases figures for trends in cycling for Birmingham.

These results show there has been an overall increase in cycling, with daily figures from automatic counters placed at key sites having registered an increase of 37 per cent over the period 2008-2011.
