The number of cyclists in London are equal to a fifth of all tube passengers

Unless you've been walking round the city with your eyes closed (which we wouldn't recommend, by the way), you'll have probably noticed that the number of people tackling London on two wheels is seriously on the up. In fact, according to new figures from TfL, the number of people cycling every day in London is now equal to 10 percent of all buses and a fifth of all daily tube passengers. Sure, a fifth might not sound that impressive, but given that the tube sees up to 4 million passengers every day, it's not exactly an insubstantial amount. But TfL hopes to get even more people peddling in London, aiming to double the number of people cycling every day to 1.5 million by 2026. Looks like they better get a move on with those new cycle super highways, then.

Here are five cool cycling brands you need to know about.
