No More Cycling Revolutions - Bruce McVean


London’s cycling revolution was launched in 2010 with the aim that by 2026 5% of journeys would be made by bike. A distinctly unambitious target (5% is the current European average for cycling mode share) that may yet prove to be unrealistic, cycling continues to limp along at just 2% of journeys.

London is a long way off being a cycling city.
