The Propensity to Cycle Tool (PCT) provides an evidence based approach to support planners deciding where to prioritise cycling spend. Specifically, it allows planners not just to build cycling infrastructure where it is easy to build, or where there are an existing large number of cyclists, but to prioritise areas where there is high cycling potential – “building for tomorrow, not for yesterday”.
