Covent Garden Market

There are plenty of folding bikes already on the Elizabeth Line - I'm not sure that people have realised that regular bikes can also be carried.

The west end of the Strand was closed to through motor traffic in August 2021. It's STILL a building site in March 2022, with no through access for bikes at the west end.

Supposedly open to Human-powered vehicles, but it doesn't really work for cycling.

Signs say 'Human-powered vehicles only' but the barriers make it very difficult to cycle.

Room for more cycle parking near Paddington station

Cycle parking at the bus stops near the Crossrail (Elizabeth Line) station at Paddington

Modal filter on the ramp to/from the Crossrail (Elizabeth Line) station at Paddington - those aren't Sheffield stands to the left, they're just to keep the doors clear.

Passageway between the main line and Crossrail (Elizabeth Line) stations at Paddington - the No Cycles sign refers only to the temporary fencing but there's still a huge lack of cycle parking here.

A ‘live’ cycle parking indicator telling you exactly how many spaces are left. We’ve done this for years with car parks but I’ve not seen one for bikes before (although I expect it's not the first). [Particularly useful for peopl ... [more]

Lansdowne Passage leading to Berkeley Street - this was notorious as a perfect getaway for robbers and highwaymen. They put in place iron bars to stop them riding through. https://t.co/hBnQjspNaK See also www.londonremembers.com/sites ... [more]

Maybe they'll finally be able to provide a decent amount of cycle parking for Somerset House and the Courtauld Gallery once the west end of the Strand is open only to pedestrians and cycles?

Access for bus, taxis and bikes only from Aldwych to the Strand

Aldwych has been two-way for all traffic since August.

It would be more useful to actually provide cycle parking rather than just putting up railings with No Cycle Parking stickers.

Start of segregated cycle lane on Westbourne Terrace

Feeing for the owner of this newish looking bike locked up on the corner of Berwick and Gt Marlborough St in Soho- the roadworks further along the road mean that large vehicles turn right and perhaps don’t check what they’re running ove ... [more]

Bus lane closure because of building work to the left - all the cyclists I saw just weaved through the bollards.

Road space reallocated from parking to socialising

Companies are starting to notice the value of cargo bikes.... (also saw a pedalme, but those are 2 a penny in London now :) https://t.co/ywDV466A7C

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/

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.

Modal filter on Quietway 2

Left turn on Quietway 2

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.
