The Great British Bike to Work


Here’s a little visualisation created with the DataShine platform. It’s the DataShine Commute map, adapted to show online cycle flows, but all of them at once – so you don’t need to click on a location to see the flow lines. I’ve also added colour to show direction. Flows in both directions will “cancel out” the colour, so you’ll see grey.

London sees a characteristic flow into the centre, while other cities, like Oxford, Cambridge, York and Hull, see flows throughout the city. Other cities are notable for their student flows, typically to campus from the nearby town, such as Lancaster and Norwich. The map doesn’t show intra-zone (i.e. short distance) flows, or ones where there are fewer than 25 cyclists (13 in Scotland as the zone populations are half those in England/Wales) going between each origin/destination zone pair – approximately 0.15% of the combined population.

  1. De plus, il faut rajouter que Connors revient à RG, justement seulement en 79 après ses meilleures années, alors n°3, marié , papa et beaucoup plus sympa, joueur avec le public tout en ayant gardé son fighting spirit. RG n’a pas connu le bad boy, c’était alors McEnroe…Pas surprenant si RG en fait son chouchou d’emblée .. et que ça deviendra le tournoi préféré de Jimbo.

  2. There were about the same number of tea-baggers in drag as one would expect for a Siouxsie & the Banshees reunion concert, first of all, and then the Fux Nutworkers probably took all the slop buckets of shit and urine and dumped it into the purple Kool-Aide they were handing out.That’s my answer.
