London is famous for its extensive transit network that carries millions of commuters into its central core daily. In looking towards more sustainable, car-free options, Transport for London has partnered with Barclays to construct a two-part bicycle infrastructure: a bike share program to quickly transport passengers across Central London, and a series of Cycle Superhighways to transport bicycle commuters from outer neighborhoods into the center. This research focuses on examining two key concepts regarding the city's cycling infrastructure: determining the optimal geographic area and distance for a bike share zone, and using design to retrofit existing hard infrastructure to accommodate bike share and extended bike highways.
