Cyclists: ‘catch up with the traffic jam’

Spot the difference...

Here on the A113 in Chingford motorists are permitted to park in the cycling-friendly one-metre wide cycle lane between 9.30 am and 4.30 pm on weekdays, because everybody knows that no one in London cycles during this time.

Who can possibly doubt that with attractive vehicular cycling conditions like these, London is on track for a massive surge in people taking up cycling in outer London, with overall modal share of 5 per cent by 2026?
