To get onto the contraflow cycleway to the right you'd have to go left to find a dropped kerb. And the sign doesn't mention that this is NCN route 4.

NCN route 4 past the new One Blackfriars tower

No Entry Except Cycles between Waterloo and Blackfriars

Whatever modal filter or rising bollards were here have been removed.

Cycle contraflow lane on C14 route past Guy's Hospital

Cycle parking at Guy's Hospital

About 100m of Great Maze Street is strictly pedestrian-only - it's still a very useful route to and from London Bridge station (and of course The Shard).

Cycle parking and the end of the strictly pedestrian stretch of road through Guy's Hospital

About 100m of Great Maze Street is strictly pedestrian-only - it's still a very useful route to and from London Bridge station.

[Image taken 3 November 2021] Mill Street, London SE1. Cycles come in all shapes and sizes and it’s important to give people convenient places to park them. It’s nice to see these specific areas for cargo and adapted cycles in Southwark ... [more]

Make it a loop hangar - a lot of bicycles in the area get vandalised

Another helpful cycle lane [since modified]

Temporary cycle lane on London Bridge

Cycle lane switches to the other side of the road here.

Cargo bike parking outside Co-Op

All nearby Cycle storage schemes are fully occupied. Southwark have implemented lots of new quietways for cyclists but have not increased storage. We are a household of three adults who would all like to cycle but nowhere to store our bikes ... [more]

Cycle parking on the TfL river service

An eastbound cyclist on ncr 4 pauses at Surrey Quays to enjoy the high-rise skyline of the Isle of Dogs.

We have just moved into a first floor flat (no garden) and would like to park our three bikes securely on our street; Oglander Road SE15 4EN. A bike hangar would be really helpful and useful to us. All bike hangars around us are full and we ... [more]

Space for a cyclehoop bike hanger. The street has a lot of driveway parking, but no provision for cycle storage for upstairs flats. I have had verbal support for some residents and will seek signatures.

The bike hangar location should be on the corner of Holmdene Avenue and Herne Hill. There is a widened area of pavement here or it could occupy one parking space on the corner, which is located behind a bollard which adds extra safety/prote ... [more]

Suggest 1 x cycle hangar for 6 cycles on restricted parking bay, e.g. outside 11 Alpha Street

Please could we have cycling parking for our work staff. We are located Richmond Pharmacology Ltd, 1A Newcomen Street, London, SE1 1YR

Flower pot cycle parking

Cycle parking outside pub

Cycle parking

cycle parking near Tower Bridge

It is incredibly necessary to accommodate the cycling residents around here. There are no nearby storage options and the residential units are small with very little space for storing bikes inside (and are often split into flats, anyway).

Oncoming, but #cpz car storage on Councillor Street left no room for #safecycling, so best chance it in the dooring zone. @stopkillingcycl https://t.co/lfUkXqhH5j

Stand should sit outside school entrance/side where it will not disturb cars parked opposite houses. This side is normally free from cars.

It's a car park

Tower Bridge closure - 5 minutes for a ship to pass through, and for lots of cyclists to gather at the front of the queue (there are two pigeons on the bridge which quite happily rode up and down)..

Red light on Tower Bridge - 5 minutes for a ship to pass through, and for lots of cyclists to gather at the front of the queue.

Left turn only (to Tower Bridge) except for cyclists (NCN route 4 straight ahead) - take care.

New section of NCN route 4 about to open

Cycle contraflow under London Bridge station

No Motor Vehicles except for access on the south side of London Bridge station - there's plenty of room for cycle parking or a contraflow cycle lane, but no.

Vinegar Yard - very hipster, no cycle parking

Cycle route sign to Bermondsey and Catford from the south side of London Bridge station

The road past the south side of London Bridge suddenly becomes one-way, although there's room for a contraflow cycle lane - most cyclists keep going anyway, as there's almost no motor traffic.

Brakeside Bikeside Bankside - covered cycle parking near Tate Modern

Cycle cut-through closed for construction work

Parking by NCN route 4 on the south side of Tate Modern

Ramp to Tate Modern and the riverside walk

Bizarre signs at either end of this alley - there clearly is access to the Bankside Gallery, and thus to the riverside walk.

Elephant and Castle roundabout with segregated cycle lanes on the circulating carriageway and approach arms London

Road closure and bike-sharing station

Contraflow link under the Thameslink rail route

Cycle contraflow past Tate Modern - 20mph limit in both directions...

Lots of generously spaced cycle parking at Tate Modern

A bike hangar would be fantastic and secure

Somewhere near the area would be really great. Thank you!

*whispers to you* Except cycles https://t.co/i1IYx1XUEg

CS6 on Blackfriars Bridge

Good practice - barriers to stop construction vehicles parking in the cycle lane (NCN route 4)

For some reason the contraflow cycle lane is not mandatory so three cars are blocking it here. There's clearly not enough cycle parking either.

CycleStreets meeting at City Hall (something to do with journey planner data probably), and Boris Johnson pops by. Exact date unknown, but was shortly after the introduction of the 'Boris bikes'.
