Red Nose Day in Southwark

Lots of bikes on the other side of the road against the railings due to lack of good cycle parking at this transport interchange.

Canal through Rotherhithe with cycle route adjacent.

Beatson Walk, Rotherhithe. Nice cycle ride.

Cycle-friendly streets.

Accessible cycle crossing - no barriers.

Rubbish cycle parking. Theoretically secure but probably not in practice, and not very practical. Most people will just use the railings instead.

Signing for walkers which sensibly shows the time to the destination rather than the distance.

Nelson Walk, Rotherhithe - nice cycle route in this area.

St Mary's Churchyard, which re-opened in May 2008, is the first part of the regeneration of the Elephant and Castle. An underused green space was landscaped, a children's playground was put in and three cycle racks were installed (see #140 ... [more]

Cycle hoop. Anthony is a trainee architect who is also a cyclist. And a cyclist who has had a bike stolen by thieves who lifted it off the top of the pole he had 'secured' it to. Anthony has subsequently designed the Cyclehoop http://ww ... [more]

Cyclehoops are designed to be installed on street furniture. Designer Anthony Lau says this reduces street clutter by using existing structures rather than adding more and makes installing them fast - Anthony says he can put in 20 in a day. ... [more]

Signing of a cycle contraflow on a one way street at Upper Ground

Barriers have appeared within the last year to block what should be a useful cycle route parallel to Newington Butts and Kennington Park Road, especially as a car-free housing development is to be built just south of here.

Southwark Cyclists and Lambeth Cyclists have arranged with developers Firstbase to place campaign posters on hoardings by Churchyard Row, part of the Elephant and Castle cycle bypass (linking Southwark and Lambeth boroughs).

'Please cycle responsibly' in St Mary's Churchyard, Elephant and Castle

St Mary's Churchyard Park, Elephant and Castle - badly designed and installed cycle stands - a bike at one stand blocks the adjacent one. [now replaced - see #15319] At rear, Sheffield stands at the leisure centre not used because they're t ... [more]

Responsible cycling is permited in the excellent new St Mary's Churchyard park, part of the Elephant & Castle regeneration - so why not install a dropped kerb?

Is this really meant to be cycle parking ?? - perhaps not. Aldi, Old Kent Road, London

Southwark Park

Responsible cycling allowed in (just about) all Southwark parks.

Access to Southwark Park from Mayflower Street

Entry to Southwark Park from Paradise Street - cyclists can pass to the right of the gate, but it's not that well organised.

Planters seemingly installed to impede cycling, provide dark corners for muggers....

Cut-through parallel to the A200

With a few drop kerbs etc, this could be a useful alternative to the parallel A200.

West end of what should be a useful cycle route parallel to the A200 (though the Thames-side route is not far away).

There's no reason to ban careful cyclists from this underpass.

Quayside in Docklands

What innocent thought you could have a Mandatory Cycle Lane outside a minicab office?!? Usually four cars parked in the MCL, zero enforcement.

Cycle contraflow on Southwark Bridge Road - Elephant and Castle cycle bypass (near South Bank University).

Rockingham Street cycle crossing, Elephant and Castle cycle bypass (close to South Bank University).

Munton Road, Elephant and Castle cycle bypass?? - a contraflow track just ends without even a drop-kerb, with a choice of two no-entry roads!

Impressive signage on the Elephant and Castle cycle bypass - Heygate Street.

Elephant and Castle cycle bypass - Steedman Street contraflow.

Elephant and Castle cycle bypass - Churchyard Lane to Hampton Street

Elephant and Castle cycle bypass - Churchyard Row

Not much parking at the Imperial War Museum - two mini-Sheffield stands on each side, and a couple by the road outside.

These racks are not far from the LCC offices. Note how limply that bike clings to the 'rack'.

Almost-invisible infrastructure - cycle route signs painted on-road.

Contraflow on London's South Bank (the entry was totally flooded the previous night)

Road behind the photographer = King Edward Walk (Borough: Lambeth) Crossing Westminster Bridge Road (Road administered by: TfL) Looking towards Morley Street (Borough: Southwark)
