In 2000 the proportion of cars to bicycles entering central London in the morning peak was 11:1; in 2014 it was 2:1. If the trend continues cycles entering London in the morning will outnumber cars by 2019. In 2015/16 London has spent roughly £18 (US$25) per person on cycling – on par with Germany and the Netherlands. Cycle casualty (injury) rates are the lowest ever recorded, while cycling deaths in 2015 (9) were the second lowest on record, and the lowest per journey on record. http://bit.ly/1SGNqAo
