As LBC broke the news that the Cycle Superhighway on the Victoria Embankment will be closed for six months, Nick Ferrari wanted to see the chaos it will cause for cyclists.

LBC has discovered that engineers will close the Victoria Embankment for a two-mile stretch for six months from 29th April next year.

Theo Usherwood will pedal along the Cycle Superhighway, while Rachael Venables will have to take a route that avoids the section that will be closed. How much longer will that take?
