Official Map: Bicycles on the London Underground

One of the things I love about the London Underground is the seemingly endless cavalcade of official Tube maps: the normal map, large print, color-blind friendly, step-free access, geographical… and now this: where and when you’re allowed to bring your bike. 

Foldable bikes are allowed pretty much everywhere (but not during peak travel times, please!), but full-size bikes are much more limited in where they can go. In general, the allowed areas for such bikes corresponds to the subsurface lines – the Circle, District, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines – plus the DLR and some suburban (above ground) parts of the deep tube lines. These lines have much smaller carriages than the subsurface lines, which would limit their ability to take bicycles.

The map does show some oddities in the system: you can take your full-size bike one stop from Cockfosters to Oakwood on the Piccadilly line, but no further! And there’s a one station gap in the full-size bike network between Colindale and Hendon Central on the Northern line. So you can bring your bike on and off the platform at either station, but you can’t travel between them? That’s weird.

You’ll all be relieved to know that you’re welcome to bring your bike on the Emirates Air Line cable car at any time: they’re happy to see someone – anyone! – using the darn thing.
