London Mayor Looks to Amsterdam With Plan for 15-Mile Bike Route

London Mayor Boris Johnson plans to build a 15-mile bike route across the U.K. capital as part of a 913 million-pound ($1.37 billion) plan to boost cycling.

The east-west track, which will follow Dutch examples in segregating bicycles from other traffic, will be one of Europe’s longest, Johnson said in a statement from the Greater London Authority, adding that he also aims to change cycling’s image.
