Seven in 10 Brits believe that cyclists are harmless, keep down traffic levels and save the planet, new research has revealed.
Policy Expert's survey found that 52% think that cars should be banned from town and city centres and only bikes and public transport given access.
And 74.9% told the survey that they believed cyclists should have special cycle paths.
Researchers also asked what most frustrates road users. Britain's top five traffic gripes were found to be:
• Behaviour of other motorists (39.9%)
• The sheer level of traffic on the roads (28.4%)
• The behaviour of cyclists (8.6%)
• Speed cameras (6.2%)
• Low speed limits (2.5%)
