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]

Outside Selfridges on London’s Oxford Street.

The Marble Arch Mound.

Exhibition Road

Constitution Hill

Trafalgar Square and the tree is the annual gift from the people of Norway 🇳🇴.

Hopefully someone will be along with a better picture soon, but the cycle lanes on Waterloo Bridge have taken over the former car parking/bus lane areas and are now wide and properly protected.

Cycle stands in the Leicester Square pedestrian zone.

Bike parking and Santander cycles at the National Gallery - the stands in the distance are fenced off for building work.

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

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.

Having been closed for a full ten years for Crossrail construction work, access on the southwestern side of Paddington station has been opened up again.

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

Pop-up cycleway

Access to new pop-up cycleway

Pop-up barrier

Good to see public space used for socialising instead of driving

Modal filter

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

Three sets of sheffield stands opposite Prince Charles Cinema/Leicester Square Theatre.

Secure 2 tier cycle racks inside car park. Urban Parking 42 Shelton Street, London WC2H 9HJ

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.

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.

Pavement widening for social distancing

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
