Quietways

April 2015: Tfl have posted information online of a helpful initiative they’re calling ‘Quietways’.

“Quietways will be a network of radial and orbital cycle routes throughout London. Linking key destinations, they will follow backstreet routes, through parks, along waterways or tree-lined streets.”

TfL are working in partnership with London boroughs and managing authorities to deliver seven Quietway routes by mid-2016:

  • Waterloo to Greenwich (Lambeth, Southwark, Lewisham, Greenwich) (

    route map)

  • Bloomsbury to Walthamstow (first phase to Mare Street) (Camden, Islington, Hackney, Waltham Forest) 

TfL say that maps for the further five routes are to be made available during spring 2015.

  • Regents Park to Gladstone Park (Dollis Hill) (Westminster, Brent, Camden)
  • Elephant & Castle to Crystal Palace (City, Southwark, Lambeth)
  • Aldgate to Hainault (first phase Whitechapel to Fulwell Cross) (Tower Hamlets, Newham, Redbridge, Hackney, and the London Legacy Development Corporation)
  • Waterloo to Wimbledon (via Clapham Common) (Lambeth, Wandsworth, Merton)
  • Clapham Common to Croydon (Lambeth, Wandsworth, Croydon).
