Part of an art work at the Royal Academy...

Hidden cycle parking at the Royal Academy - for staff or students, I suspect.

Cycle parking at the Royal Academy - more needed!

Quietway 1, Covent Garden, London

South Carriageway closed to vehicles westbound, for no obvious reason - no mention that the shared-use route is open for cycling.

No cycling on this cut-through

The towpath under Bishops Bridge Road, Paddington Basin

Stepped access only from Bishops Bridge Road to the towpath

Little-used cycle route past the police station in Hyde Park (no cycling on the routes to the left)

Rush-hour cyclists heading into Hyde Park

NCN route 4 in the bus lane on Lambeth Bridge

There's not realy a lot of cycle provision at Tate Britain.

CS5 crossing CS8, with no signs or provision for turning from one to the other.

Poor link to CS8 - dropped kerbs needed.

Alley parallel to CS8

Strongly marked CS8 past a bus stop.

Confusing markings - the arrow is for motor traffic, not CS8, which goes straight ahead - but NCN route 4 does turn left here.

On- and off-road routes in both directions.

CS8 turns left here across Chelsea Bridge, while NCN route 4 continues ahead.

18 months of hard campaigning paid off – all key stakeholders no longer opposed to #CloseTheGates at #RegentsPark (https://lcc.org.uk/articles/lets-close-the-gates-stakeholders-now-agree-to-regents-park-cs11-plan). Big thank you to all ... [more]

Cycling is permitted on the short closure between the two halves of Bond Street.

No Cycling (though it would be a useful cut-through avoiding Parliament Square)

Experimental cycle route by Wellington Barracks, London

Experimental cycle route by Buckingham Palace. I don't know how you're meant to get onto it northbound.

It would be logical for the cycle route to continue west to the end of Kensington Gardens, but the Royal Parks have never cared much about logic.

Sign to the right off Cycle Superhighway 53, along South Carriage Drive, Hyde Park. Why not tell us where the route goes ahead?

Crossing on Cycle Superhighway 53, along South Carriage Drive, Hyde Park

Cycle Superhighway 53, along Constitution Hill. It's fairly obvious where the cyclists are meant to go, but there are still plenty of cyclists on the road, and pedestrians on the cycleway.

Somerset House - so popular now, so little cycle parking.

The new Pashley bikes for TfL's bike-sharing scheme all have Blaze Laserlights - I find it a bit disconcerting to be on the road with all these green lights bouncing around, but I suppose I'll get used to it.

Cycle parking present here.
