Sharing cycling data


We share our data to support research, policy and decision making at all levels.

From community groups to local authority transport planners, from academic researchers to urban designers, our data can be used to support evidence-based choices and helps build the case for further investment in cycling and cycle infrastructure.

We share our data in two primary ways.

Cycling Open Data portal

The most comprehensive collection of cycling data of its kind in Scotland. The portal includes real-time automatic cycle counter data from over 700 sites, alongside a range of additional datasets and reporting.


Annual Cycling Monitoring Report

A national picture of cycling behaviour, road safety, access to bikes and attitudes to cycling, as well as snapshots of cycling at a local authority level.

First published in 2015, this annual publication provides both an overview of where we are now, and the progress of several indicators established in the Active Travel Outcomes Framework (2019).
