A Taxpayers' Alliance investigation has found that 88 local authorities across the UK have spent £2,025,939.43 on adult cycling lessons. These councils have offered 25,512 lessons over the last three financial years.

"Councils must scrap these blatantly frivolous schemes and focus on providing frontline services for struggling households.”
