At last some good cycle parking at Canada Water tube

Some very stupid street furniture obstructing the brand new cycle lanes at the top of Rye Lane, Peckham. This is part of the London Cycle Network route 22.

Nice walkway in East London

These shops need cycle parking

Cycle marking on road

Surrey Water

Paradox - construction of one of the first Cycling Superhighways in London has led to the virtual closure of an existing cycle route, It's hard to see why, but perhaps it will tun out to be more than a strip of blue paint after all.

Plantlock in a domestic garden.

The National Trust's George Inn, Borough High Street - the Cycle Parking arrows are just to persuade cyclists to move their bikes beyond the pub door before locking them to the railings.

Contraflow cycle lane on Union Street

Minor cut-through off Druid Street.

Since my A-Z was published this main road has been closed and replaced by a shared-use route for cycles.

Handy cut-through in St John's Churchyard (considerate cycling permitted)

Druid Cycle, Druid St, Bermondsey - somewhat alternative.

Cycle parking taken over by motorbikes at this new development.

New development in Bermondsey, with a car-free avenue but next to no cycle parking.

Bikes stored on all three balconies - why do new developments not have adequate cycle parking?

A new crossing and a bit of other work is needed to make this a useful cycle route.

Not much work needed to make this a useful cycle route.

Cops on bikes at the London Marathon (dual carriageway closed to traffic, runners on the north carriageway).

Druid Cycles 'United to Assist'

Bankside diversion sign.

Thames-side promenade at City Hall. Potentially ideal for cycling, but the owners, More London, are so anti-cycling they won't even allow pedal-powered generators for events at The Scoop.

How to ruin a nice wide cycle lane...

Diversion for cyclists around roadworks south of London Bridge

Evans Cycles, by London Bridge.

Cycle Parking in Nunhead

Cycle bypasses at a road closure - hard to tell what the point is, or when they'd be used.

Cut-through, London cycle route 22, Peckham Rye

Road narrowing on London cycle route 23, Camberwell Grove - there's now alternate car traffic to the road, while the cycle route is always open, though cyclists still have to stop at the red light, of course.

Chains have been added to the posts that separate the bike racks from the nearest motor vehicle parking space. (See also #16540, #16559, #16541.) I arrived as the owners of the two bikes shown in the background were struggling to secure th ... [more]

This is the cycle parking outside Halfords (which has a Bike Hut) that the landlord of the site suggested would suffice for customers of B&Q despite that store being at the other end of the park). See also #16539, #16540, #16541 and #17087 ... [more]

This image shows how far the bike racks at B & Q are from the entrance to the store. (Compare this scenario with that in Cambridge #16560.) They are 'beyond' the entrance in the sense that to cycle to them you would need to go through the c ... [more]

I was pleased to see that spaces between the uprights in the long-campaigned for racks at B&Q (see also #16541, #16539, #16559 and #17087) are quite far apart. I was able to get into the space and load up my bike. It would be tighter if the ... [more]

Since 19 June 2006 I've been lobbying B & Q and the managing agents of the site to get cycle parking put in outside B&Q. There's a clear need - there was always at least one other bike, usually several, attached to the railings surrounding ... [more]
