Bike to Work Color Wheels
DataShine has created an interesting visualization of commuting journeys made by bike in a number of UK cities. The map uses data from the 2011 census to show the number of bike commuters between different neighborhoods.
The flow lines on the Great British Bike to Work map show neighborhood to neighborhood biked commutes which are made by more than 24 people. The colors of the flow lines on the map reveal the direction of travel.
Looking at London you can clearly see that the main centers of employment are in the city and the West End. It also appears that bike commuters who live south of the Thames are prepared to commute further distances than north Londoners. This could be partly due to the scarcity of the London Underground service in south London.
