Cycling in Hackney

A recent report from Transport for London confirmed that Hackney is the best borough for cycling in London - 8% of residents in Hackney say that cycling is their main mode of travel. This is double the closest other borough (Richmond on Thames at 4%).

This shows the popularity of cycling in the Borough and is a great achievement. The Council is investing considerably in promoting cycling and improving conditions for cyclists locally so we can push that 8% figure up even further. Free cycle training is available for all residents, alongside a number of other initiatives - see here for full details. Please do contact us if you have any suggestions for improving cycling in Stoke Newington.

The full report is here. Other modes of travel for Hackney residents are: walking (35%); bus (28%); car (19%); underground (5%) and rail (3%).
