BORIS Johnson has launched a specially designated bike lane through east London today in a bid to boost bike use in the capital.
The route, now dubbed CS3 heads from Barking to Tower Gateway via Commercial Road and Cable Street in Shadwell.
Transport for London estimates that cyclists make 5,000 trips a day on the route, but wants to increase this to 27,000 daily trips by 2013.
