An increasing number of people are leaving the Tube and train behind to hop on bikes to commute to work, and buy-to-let investors should take note.
With car parking spaces always hard to come by in London, property developers are now starting to provide bike storage facilities near to their developments.
The number of cyclists in the capital has reportedly doubled in the last ten years, and there has been an increase in the number of Santander cycle hires.
When previously property investors looked to bag a place near to a tube or train station, now investors have more options, and should reap the benefits of investing in a property close to cycle lanes or close to the river, to meet the needs of a growing army of commuters who travel to work via boat and TfL River Services.
Battersea, with its position right by the River Thames, and its cycle lanes, also offers strong train links, meaning it is an area investors can invest in knowing all the transport options are available to tenants.
It's an exciting time for Battersea. As the regeneration of Battersea Power Station continues, new homes, offices, restaurants, and shops are being added, and the neighbourhood is very much an evolving one.
