More permeability!

Hillstowe Street, E5. You can see at a glance why this fabulous route for cyclists forms part of the London Cycle Network and provides a major route into Hackney for cyclists heading into town from Waltham Forest. With permeability like this it’s no wonder so many people in Hackney cycle.

But then Waltham Forest is itself an exemplar local authority, which can congratulate itself on providing the kind of attractive infrastructure which is bound to see a massive rise in cycling in future years. Like here on Edinburgh Road E17, for example.
