What is a Quietway
Quietways are a network of bike routes for less confident cyclists using mainly low-traffic back streets. The routes are not just for current cyclists, but are for people who have always been put off cycling by the thought of sharing the road with high volumes of cars, vans, buses and lorries. Introducing Quietways forms an integral part of the Mayor of London’s vision for cycling and the council’s objective to significantly increase the number of residents using cycling as their preferred mode of transport, particularly for local journeys.
The overall cycle routes in Southwark are shown here.
