Hopefully good news around the corner for Chris Froome in the Vuelta. Outside of sport, cycling is playing an increasingly important infrastructure which is helping to drive the property market. News of further expansion of the London cycling routes (see linked article on the positive impact on housing) comes alongside announcements today from the Chinese Government with ambitious plans to create the world's biggest cycle network. 

Cycling has a great role to play in opening up our towns and cities as well as supporting lifestyle and leisure. The impact of the Camel Trail and Tarka Trail in the SW for instance has been considerable.

The aspiration of cycling is becoming a greater selling point for property development even if the reality of donning the lycra lags a little way behind.
