Transport for London (TfL) has just published data from its annual Travel in London report, showing there has been a continued boom in walking and cycling in London with levels of cycling continue to exceed pre-pandemic levels. Cycling in autumn 2022 was 40 per cent higher than in 2019.
Cycling on weekdays this autumn has also typically been around 20-25 per cent higher than pre-pandemic levels, despite less commuting, and around 90 per cent higher at weekends.
