For a long time, Amsterdam in the Netherlands and Copenhagen in Denmark have been known worldwide as the bicycle capital because the number of vehicles here is larger than the population of the city. But now there is London, England.
A bicycle tour of the British will change the way you look at the city
The number of cyclists in London has doubled over the past 10 years, according to statistics from the London Cycling Campaign. With the increase in the number of cyclists, cycling culture in London has become increasingly fashionable.
From developing bike-themed cafes and investing in bike lanes, London is showing all the signs towards a bike capital.
London is aiming to become a paradise for cycling
London cyclists often meet at the vehicle’s fan café. This is also a place where friendships are built on a common interest in either bicycle or coffee.
The trend of cycling is on the rise in the UK capital that many people shop for themselves a bike to match London fashion trends. Some people are not too concerned about fashion, they will choose for themselves the most suitable car to help them move as quickly as possible when traffic congestion in London worsens.
However, in a city that attaches great importance to fashion such as London, it is not surprising that many major fashion brands of bicycle-style have emerged and developed, such as Nonusual and Cyclodelic. These brands have quickly launched a line of fashion clothes and accessories for fans of the bike.

Even big fashion brands like H&M have their own line of cycling fashion, designed in collaboration with major London bike brand – Brick Lane Bikes.
The sense of cycling is increasing
Since 2010, London Mayor Boris Johnson has launched a citywide bicycle rental program – borrowing the idea of the Vélib bicycle rental system in France. The bicycles in this rental service are called Boris Bikes (after the Mayor of London). Approximately 6,000 bicycles have been deployed at docking stations around the city.
