A map of the London Cycleable Network
We have a London Cycle Network. But how much of it is actually cycleable?
Scrap that, how much of the entire London street network is cycleable?
This is something I’ve been thinking about for a while. I’d love to have a map of the whole of London’s street network (plus cycle-only links), highlighting green anything safe for a competent solo twelve-year-old (the design user of the National Cycle Network, apparently). It would graphically highlight where a person can get to – and where they can’t – using only properly quiet streets, decent segregated infrastructure, or permitted park routes. You could compare boroughs using different metrics, and see at a glance the biggest gaps. It could be used alongside the Propensity to Cycle Tool, which highlights cycling potential and key desire lines.
