Convertible space with tip-up seats in a Class 345 Crossrail (Elizabeth line) train - I didn't see any specific cycle markings outside.

Just three steps to get a bike down at Paddington station - but a total block for wheelchairs, of course.

Paddington station taxi rank - dropped kerb needed for bikes, wheelchairs etc

@allpartycycling I would not totally hate going back to something that looks like this. https://t.co/N9pcbumJxs See https://www.carnaby.co.uk/history/

Cycle hangar

London contractors seem to be quite good at this nowadays.

It's mid-lockdown, but there are lots of bikes at Paddington station (mine included). There's a public tool stand as well.

I'm pretty sure a northbound lane has been closed off here - it's a shame that contraflow cycling wasn't maintained.

Is this a replacement for the stands in #164638 and #164639, removed perhaps to give pedestrians space for social distancing ? Not very impressive.

Cycle stands to be removed - perhaps to give pedestrians space for social distancing

Lane for taxis turning left into Paddington station - cyclists can continue ahead, but need to look out for taxis emerging.

This looked like a way for cyclists to bypass the roundabout - but no.

I am never not *astonished* when I walk thru Lutyens’s Page Street flat blocks in Pimlico, (1) ‘cause BLIMEY that chequerboard effect is *dazzling* and (2) they feel so modern yet a design of 1928. Social housing; but fine housing. Even ... [more]

Advanced green phase for cyclists north- and southbound under the Edgware Road flyover

A cycle contraflow here (instead of parking) would open up access to Paddington station.

The widened footways for social distancing by St Mary's Hospital don't make life any easier for cyclists.

This shared crossing with pedestrians has too much conflict now to be shared use; the crossing should be redesigned to separate out users

Bus stop bypass for new cycleway

New two-way segregated cycleway constructed using wands

Very poor apportionment of road space outside Harrods

Now that’s how you design a quick build cycle lane and bus stop!! Admittedly, it does help if you’ve spent half a century aggressively widening roads in the name of car dominance.

First time I have seen a bike hangar out in the wild in ⁦@CityWestminster⁩ 😊

The Regent’s Canal towpath is not much use for effective cycling when there are many people enjoying the waterway vicinity on foot.

New contraflow cycle lane, blocked by a Royal Mail van which forces cyclists out into oncoming traffic.

I can't tell how much this is roadworks and how much it's a covid-19 pop-up cycle facility.

More cycle parking needed at St Mary's Hospital, Paddington

Cycle stands but no dropped kerb where there could be a route to and across Paddington Basin.

Not a cycle route, not a cycle stand, but people do ride through here.

Decorative bridge at Paddington Basin - not a cycle route.

Westminster borough is taking a different approach to Covid-19 to Camden - not pop-up cycle lanes, but taking roadspace outside Marks & Spencer to help social distancing by pedestrians.

Lots of bike stands and sheltered bike-sharing stations

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.

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?
