Cycling to work: Westminster beats London but lags behind Hackney

The results of the 2011 census show what proportion of the residents of each area cycle to work.

As the chart shows, Westminster's 3.1% beats the overall London figure of 2.6%, which in turn beats the England & Wales figure of 1.9%.

As expected, some of the boroughs in Zone 2 record the highest levels of cycling to work, with Hackney leading the field at 9.2%.

Within Westminster, the ‘output area’ with the highest proportion of cycling commuters is WES022A, the Moreton triangle in Pimlico. A few other areas in Pimlico, Baywater, Westbourne Park and Maida Hill also come above 5%.

There are, of course, more cyclists on Westminster's streets than these figures would suggest. That's because thousands cycle in every day from those Zone 2 boroughs.
