Two friends put London's cycle routes and public transport to the test after filming who gets across the city faster in a travel experiment.
Dan and Fin took part in the challenge of taking two routes - one using his bike from Crystal Palalce to King's Cross and the other using the Underground and tube.
After filming the race on GoPros, the two discovered that cycling from Zone 3 to 1 was actually faster than using public transport in London.
While Dan’s trip via public transport took 1 hour 17 minutes, Fin’s trip across London took just one hour to cycle.
The experiment, carried out by Currys PC World, also highlighted how cycling was cheaper, with an annual travelcard for Zones 1-3 costing more than it does to buy and service a bike over a year.
Another perk of cycling was that Fin is estimated to have burned 610 calories on his cycle journey, while Dan is estimated to have burned just a third of that - 195 calories – while travelling on the bus and tube.
It comes as Sadiq Khan announced an investment to the cycling infrastructure totalling £770 million.
The city's Mayor said on Monday December 5 last year the injection into cycling is to help Londoners get about quickly without have to use a car, bringing both health benefits and improving air quality.
