Cycling industry gives economy £3bn boost

From the BBC News website http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-14610857 "The report says that regular cyclists take 7.4 sick days per year, compared with 8.7 sick days for non-cyclists, saving around £128m through reduced absenteeism, with projected savings of £2bn over the next 10 years."
