London's 'Cycle Superhighways'

The City of London has opened up two "bicycle superhighways".

In the lead-up to the 2012 Summer Olympics, the City of London is trying to improve life for the city's cyclists and help their ranks grow. Two new cross-city bicycle routes, spearheaded by Mayor Boris Johnson, push that effort.

"The two routes, sponsored by Barclays, run from Merton to the City via the A24 and A3, and Barking to Tower Gateway via the A13 and Cable Street.

Speaking at the launch on Clapham Common in south-west London, Mr Johnson said: 'It's part of a programme of things that are going to change the urban landscape, what it's like to live in and to move around in London.'"
