Cycling in Tower Hamlets

Cycling is an efficient, cheap, healthy, non-polluting mode of transport. Tower Hamlets Council wishes to encourage cycling to help improve mobility, reduce traffic congestion, and improve health in the borough. Download the latest Tower Hamlets walking and cycling newsletter (PDF, 270kb).
