Roadworks for the Cycle Superhighway along the Victoria Embankment

Having a staggered crossing at Somerset House on the new Cycle Superhighway is probably a mistake.

Parked cars blocking mandatory cycle lane.

Cycle parking tucked away around the corner from paddington station - and a public urinal beyond.

Poor stretch leading to the good towpath past the Hammersmith & City entry to Paddington station.

People can take bikes on parts of the London Underground (eg the Circle line here at Paddington) but it's a very rare sight!

Stands just by Central Hall

2013? Almost two years later. And what is a security event anyway?

Why we need the cycle highway on Embankment (the new bit being built on the right). More people on bikes than in cars http://t.co/lgl54y4SZP

Still from a bike crash recorded by a minicab camera: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jnNYiqaWPfQ Looks like the cyclist got up immediately.

The Embankment cycle highway is starting to get near to Parliament Square. Can't wait for this to open http://t.co/hDCkvcMb2E

London 1987. Oh how things have changed ...... http://t.co/BeqhpBQZ2i The exact date of this photo in 1987 is not known, but location is about here in Victoria Street. That A&N store in the distant background is actually on the left s ... [more]

Have you ever seen a backwards road sign before? This is very clever... http://t.co/XGWGMzxV1B

Bentley's (famous for fish) - using bicycle symbolism, but blocking the alley.

The power of the #nationalfuneral in action. Space reclaimed for pedestrians on #oxfordst. As it should be http://t.co/fIeTFL67fM

Stylish, well-used parking at the new Sackler Serpentine Gallery - but it's miles from the entrance and totally unsignposted.

Cycle parking at the Blackett laboratory, Imperial college. Looks a bit temporary / work in progress?

Cycle parking.

Groups from two bike tour companies on Trafalgar Square with coverage of the Tour de France in Yorkshire behind.

Poor quality cycle parking. However this is not a public access area so may be less of an issue.

I comute by train to Paddington and keep a bicycle at the station. It takes me 5-10 minutes every evening to find parking as there is at least 2-4 bikes per rack. We desperately need more racks. Thanks

I regularly visit this area outside the blood donor centre and it often takes about 5 minutes to find bike parking. There are a few stands but not enough for the volume of visitors to the area

Geovation Alumni launch event.

Huge area of cycle parking (there's even space available!) on an ungated area of London Paddington station.

Excellent cycle parking at Marylebone station

A First Great Western HST - the bike space is not now in the power car but in the end of the first carriage.

No cycling in St Johns Wood Church Grounds - a shame, as a route here could give a traffic-free route pretty much to the Regents Canal towpath
