"Londoners took to their bikes in massive numbers during the Olympics to escape packed Tubes and buses, figures reveal today.

As the Tube carried the greatest number of passengers in its history, the number of cyclists on the capital’s streets was 19 per cent higher than the same two-week period last year.

There was an even bigger rise during the Paralympics — which coincided with the end of the school holidays — when 32 per cent more Londoners travelled by bike.

The London Cycling Campaign said the statistics supported its call for 'Dutch-style' segregated cycle lanes. A spokesman said:
"A real legacy for the Olympics would be if Boris Johnson stood by his 2012 election promises to redesign our streets and junctions to make cycling and walking in London safe and inviting for everyone."
