Transport for London (TfL) has launched ten new Cycleways, totalling 35km in distance, as it continues efforts to make cycling safer and easier.

London’s strategic cycle network has more than quadrupled in size from 90km in 2016 to 390km in June 2024. 

TfL says delivering high-quality new Cycleways will support Londoners of all backgrounds and abilities to cycle safely, encouraging greater diversity in cycling. 

The new Cycleways that further expand the network in London include: 

Cycleway – Folkestone Gardens to New Cross and Greenwich to Lewisham
Two new links to Cycleway 10 (Waterloo to Greenwich) running through Lewisham, adding an additional 3km to the network 

Cycleway – Stratford to Woodgrange Park
A new 3km link to Cycleway 2 (Aldgate to Stratford), through the east of Newham   

Cycleway 51 – Burnt Oak to Colindale
The first Cycleway in Barnet, connecting two town centres 

Cycleway 60 – Chingford to Walthamstow via Ainslie Wood
A new route which connects to Cycleway 24 (Tottenham Hale to Woodford New Road) and beyond to the comprehensive network of Cycleways in Waltham Forest  

For the launch of the Cycleways, TfL has created new user-friendly maps that show where the routes are and how they connect to create local networks. 

This follows on from the recent launch of TfL Cycle Sundays, which offers a range of easy-to-follow leisure cycle routes and maps across London to explore the capital on Sundays.

Will Norman, London’s walking and cycling commissioner, said: “Expanding London’s cycleway network is key to enabling more Londoners to choose cycling as their mode of transport for shorter trips. 

“These ten new routes connect communities in areas including Stratford, New Cross, Barnet, Walthamstow and Ealing and will support Londoners of all backgrounds and abilities to cycle safely as the Mayor builds a fairer, safer greener London for everyone.”
