1st February: Cycling surges. Car ownership collapses.

Figures released from the 2011 Census this week reveal large increases in the number and proportion of London residents who use cycling as their main way to get to work. Across London as a whole, 4.3% now cycle to work, while the figure in inner London is 7.2%. Hackney has London’s highest proportion of people cycling to work, at 15.4%. (These figures exclude employed people who work from home).

Meanwhile car ownership is plummetting in inner London, and especially in Hackney, where the proportion of households which are car-free has risen to 64.6%, up from 56% in 2001, with just 170 motor vehicles per 1000 people, and about 4000 fewer cars owned overall, even though the population has increased by some 44,000.

  1. Hace poco discutía con alguien por qué hay tanto ciclista en Londres.

    Y es que no hay nada como unas calles preparadas para carruajes y un transporte público penoso y caro para que la gente se anime a las dos ruedas.

    Y eso con los carriles bici asesinos y las “supermierdaways” azules que su superalcalde ha dejado instalar a un banco del mismo color.
