According to Transport for London, the Barclays-sponsored Cycle Superhighways are leading to increased levels of cycling.
Two pilot routes were opened in July, Barking to Tower Gateway, and Merton to the City.
TfL has yet to release definitive statistics but said that early estimates show there has been an overall 25 percent increase in cycling along the distinctively blue routes, with some sections of the Merton to City route showing increases of 90 percent.
Ten more Cycle Superhighways are due to up and running by 2015.
