End of one-block contraflow cycle lane

Start of cycle contraflow lane ahead - and advance green lights for cyclists.

Start of contraflow cycle lane (and bike-sharing station)

The sign shows Marylebone 3/4 of a mile to the right - not great for those who don't realise that Marylebone station is right there in front of them.

Shared-use footway and cycle-sharing station.

The No Cycling sign should be beyond the turning to the left.

Cycle link at Saint Mary's Square, Paddington

Start of shared-use section.

No reason why this section couldn't be shared-use.

The cycle route sign has been turned 90 degrees - it's for traffic heading west/to the right.

Cyclists are supposed to turn right only because they can't be trusted to wait for pedestrians at the crossing to the left.

New contraflow cycleway and dooring zone

Nice level access to South Molton Street but there's a No Entry sign, alas.

Does there really need to be a cycling ban on Shepherd's Place in this day and age?

End of shared-use cycleway, turn left or right - there's a No Cycling sign (just to the right) for the footway ahead.

Pedestrian crossing point and tourists on the footway on Santander bikes.

Pedestrian cut-through

No idea what slowing down is meant to achieve. Telling drivers to leave space might make more sense.

Lots of cycle parking under the wonderful roof of Paddington station

Shepherd Market - I'd forgotten it actually existed. Not a cycleway, though.

Lots of double-decker cycle parking too at Marylebone station

Cycle stands as far as the eye can see on Marylebone station.

Distance to London is measured from this location, the site of the original Queen Eleanor’s Cross. CITY OF WESTMINSTER On the site now occupied by the statue of King Charles I was erected the original Queen Eleanor's Cross a replica ... [more]

George Street

Earlyish on a Saturday morning the traffic is not too busy and the wife approved of the route between KGX and PAD. Crossing Baker Street here on George.

Marylebone High Street - a place where I often get confused when travelling between King's Cross and Paddington. I have to stop and think now do I turn left then right or right then left ... every time 🤔

We're still a long way short of the full million people on the Put It To The People march, but there's still clearly no way through for a cyclist.

Piccadilly Circus

Cut-through with sushi delivery trikes

Installed by Westminster Council in St John's Wood. Has anyone tripped over these yet? :) https://t.co/7SBRCSElbZ

Quietway 2 now has double white lines on Sussex Gardens.

Segregated cycle lanes and lights for cyclists crossing into Hyde Park

Protected route for cyclists who can now turn left out of Hyde Park without waiting for a green light.

Cycle route to the Hyde Park police station

Is that a Cambridge Kerb on New Bond Street? (Ed: no) But those aren't cycle lanes on either side so maybe they're for pedestrians to share with parked cars.

Dockless e-bike sharing arrived in London and Milton Keynes in December 2018

Pedestrian Zone sign on South Molton Street

Cyclists Dismount at the Curzon Gate underpass

Is a 'No Cling' sign likely to be legally enforceable?

Hey Siri, show me a crushingly unsubtle visual metaphor for @CityWestminster’s transport policy https://t.co/aouib5ezJi

As at many London stations, there's now lots of cycle parking inside the gated area at Marylebone, where bikes presumably live overnight and at weekends.

Banksy’s <strikethru>Girl With Balloon</strikethru> Love in the Bin. My theory: two canvases a pre-cut version spews out as the main one is drawn down. Excuse for being on here: Street art :-) https://www.sothebys.com/en/articles ... [more]

At an exhibition of Modern and contemporary African art. This piece doesn’t ‘do’ anything like play records as far as I could tell.

Several hundred riders on Stop Killing Cyclists’ first Pedal on Parliament ride and die in, passing through Aldwych.
