Cycling Potential

National Monitoring Framework

Cycling Scotland’s Cycling Potential Tool (CPT) provides an evidence-base to support decision-making and investment in cycling.

The CPT analyses towns, cities and settlements down to street by street level, highlighting cycling potential through a visual map backed up by statistical outputs.

The CPT consists of four modules: 

  • Environment
  • Schools
  • Tourism
  • Development

The CPT also allows for deeper analysis by incorporating areas such as cycle network quality, health data, deprivation statistics, air quality measurements and other geocoded datasets.

Carbon savings or health benefits from ‘realising’ cycling potential can also be calculated with the CPT.
