More Londoners take to their bikes while car ownership across the capital falls dramatically

Transport for London's latest annual 'Travel In London' report shows that more than 700,000 people a day cycled during last summer, underlining a 9% shift from cars to public transport, walking and cycling since 2000.

Sadly the rise in the number of cyclists has been accompanied by a disproportionate number of injuries involving bicycles - the number of injuries and fatalities grew by 22%, more than four times the 5% increase in the number of people cycling.

Recent census data also reveals a dramatic rise in the number of car-free households across Greater London, with vast numbers of residents opting for alternatives to the private car.

In Hackney, 65% of households are now car-free, up from 56% in 2001, Westminster has seen a 6% rise, with 63% of households car-free, while 56% of Kensington & Chelsea households are now living car-free.

With so many people going car-free across the capital, it's clearly time for greater consideration to be given to the millions of Londoners using alternatives such as the bicycle, rather than continuing to put the needs of car drivers first.

LCC chief executive Ashok Sinha said, "It's wonderful to see the growth of cycling in our capital but with this comes an even greater need for better cycling infrastructure and support, to allow all cyclists to make their journeys within the capital safely."
