New cycle lanes to accompany 2012 Games

In the run up to the London 2012 Olympics a swathe of new cycle paths will be rolled out across the capital, it has emerged.

Millions of pounds of investment will be pumped into providing the environmentally-friendly network, which is intended to encourage residents and tourists to travel to the Games by bike.

Existing lanes around the Olympic Park and Stratford will be extended, but the plans also envisage a wider network being rolled out across the capital to the benefit of all Londoners.

"We are investing money in developing and improving both off-road cycle routes on canal towpaths and greenways and on-road routes using quieter roads and parks linking to the Olympic Park and other venues," affirmed Hugh Sumner, director of transport for the Olympic Development Authority.

He added: "One of our key areas of concern is ensuring groups such as young families … feel confident and safe enough to cycle to London 2012 events."

Cycling in London has increased by an 83 per cent since 2000.
