As with most of London, taking a car anywhere in South East London is just not cool. The
air quality in London is at an all-time low and people
are being encouraged to use public transport or cycle
and walking routes.
Boroughs like Lewisham operate good cycle routes and the council
website can give you access to online maps.
Places such as Bromley suffer from
extremely high congestion and the council is working
hard to address this. Bromley has 50 miles of cycle
route and across London there is an initiative
to get from A-Z using cycles. Get fit and healthy by
hiring a bike from one of the many cycle hire companies
in South East London. Southwark Cyclists offer discounted cycle purchase and cycle hire information.
