There’s over 100km of designated cycle-only lanes in London's ever-expanding network of cycleways. And another 400km is planned to be built by 2024, making London a cycle-friendlier place for all.
Cycleways connect key parts of the city together and are often the fastest way to get around too, even compared to the tube. Don’t believe us? Check out the results of these bike vs. tube races - bike travel was 33% faster on average!
