Is it faster to cycle? Or is it public transport?
The argument has been long and widespread and there are as many opinions as people arguing about it, but there is no need to continue no longer. The nice people from Find Property have used the data from TFL's (Transport From London) journey planner tool and come up with one of the coolest maps we've seen.
All you need to do is click on the map where you are and it will show you which areas will be faster to cycle to and which ones to commute using public transport.
The areas better suitable for cycling will be marked out in green while the pink areas are easier reached by transport. The considered transport includes buses, the Underground, the Overground, trams, walking (if the quickest way) and proper trains.
Find Property have gathered average working day peak time data from TFL using a cycling time of an average person. It's not a Boris Bike speed and neither is of a professional cyclist. What that means, you could be little faster or slower on your bike but this map should give you a pretty decent picture of where you stand in the London cycling world.
