The number of bike commuters in London, UK, has doubled in the past 10 years

Statistics compiled and analyzed by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) for the decade between 2001 and 2011 puts the capital well ahead of the rest of the country when it comes to bike commuting progress. n urban areas, commuting in a car doesn't make much sense. When a majority of the population tries to move back and forth between the residential areas and the work areas, all at the same time, every day, there's got to be a better way to do that than 1 person per vehicle.
