The first of two of 12 of London?s so-called ?Cycle Superhighways? were announced this morning by Mayor Boris Johnson and were greeted with scepticism by the CTC, the national cyclists organisation.

Described as Pilot corridors, the two routes of between 10 and 15 kilometres in length will run from South Wimbledon to Bank and from Barking in East London to Tower Hill. They are due to be open by May 2010 and form part of the Mayor?s £111-million investment in cycling.
