The Mayor’s Cycle Vision for London
In March 2013 the Mayor of London launched his Vision for Cycling in London, which sets outs plans to transform the role of cycling in the capital. To deliver this the Mayor announced £913million investment for cycling over the next 10 years.

Part of the Mayor’s Cycle Vision is a proposed new Central London Cycling Grid - a network of cycle routes through central London and the City. We are interested in seeking your views on the proposed routes that will run through Camden.
Cycling has grown significantly in recent years, and on some streets it is the highest used mode of transport. But there are many people who want to cycle but don’t. By offering a range of different types of routes, from direct fast commuter routes and segregation, such as the Mayor’s Cycle Superhighways to quieter back streets, the Vision aims to deliver routes which can be ridden by anyone, of any age, any ability, and from any walk of life.
Camden is committed to helping to deliver the Mayor’s Vision: it offers an exciting opportunity for the borough to achieve its objectives and targets.
The Central London Cycle Grid
A key element of the Vision is the creation of a new network of cycle routes for central London, the busiest cycle area, which is being named the Central London Grid. The Grid is being developed in partnership with all the central London boroughs, as well as Royal Parks and Canal and River Trust.
Camden is at the heart of central London, and will be a key partner in delivering the Central London Grid. We would like to hear your views on the proposed routes:
