This period has seen a strong growth in cycling, with some roads in London now experiencing their highest-ever recorded cycling levels. TfL’s annual report on travel trends, Travel in London 8 (December 2015) reported 645,000 cycle journey stages in London on an average day in 2014, representing a 10.3 per cent increase on 2013 levels.

Cycling is now a major mode of transport, with daily trips equating to 10 per cent of all bus passenger trips in London, or one fifth of all tube passenger trips. This is just less than the number of trips on the DLR and Overground combined.
