Cycling in London is now at its highest rate since records began in 2000, according to Transport for London. Across London’s main roads, cycling levels from September to December were 10% higher than in the same quarter the previous year, and a further 12% rise is predicted in 2015. Bikes now make up around 16% of traffic in Central London, rising to around a quarter or even half of all journeys on some routes during peak hours. London Mayor Boris Johnson said: “Last week I announced my final intentions for the new East-West and North-South superhighways. These amazing numbers show how cyclists are becoming ubiquitous in London and prove, if further proof were needed, why we need to crack on with catering for them.”
