Never mind allowing cycling, a security guard told me I wasn't even allowed to take photos here. Some property developers are so up themselves.

Cycle parking needed here; railings nearby have no-cycles signs so there is clearly demand

Einstein on a bike on a phonebox. No, I don't know why.

Boris Bike station near Oxford Circus

Cycle parking needed on Oxford Street now that the (dreadful) guardrailing had been removed. Could a few banks of cycle parking be added in the space where the railings were?

Actor Stephen Adams, http://www.starnow.co.uk/stephenadams follows in the footsteps of the once-fab 4. I found the live footage from this famous zebra crossing rather enthralling: http://www.abbeyroad.com/crossing

No stands near the Garden Cafe, but these rails come close

Wonderful sign spotted in Covent Garden.

New entrance to the Kensington Gardens cycle route.

Docking station for London's cycle hire scheme.

With one side of Waterloo Bridge closed, there are no road signs to deter cars from trying to push past cyclists - unlike the good practice on Hills Road in Cambridge.

Two one-way roads meet, each with a contraflow cycle lane so that cyclists can go both ways throughout.

Hide Tower, Regency Street

The cyclist on the left is in the right-turn lane to join the shared-use route to Kensington Gardens - now a busy commuting route.

London Transport Museum entrance

LCN+ featured in an interactive display at the London Transport Museum of improvements being made around London

A early 20th century photo at the London Transport Museum showing chaos on the roads - with lots of dodgy manoeuvres. Nothing much changed there then!

Lovely 1938 poster asking cyclists to "Set other road users an example" with respect to the Highway Code, at the London Transport Museum.

Dealing with Congestion in London poster, at the London Transport Museum.

Nice inclusion of a bicycle on a representation of the Paris metro, at the London Transport Museum.

Absolutely wonderful photograph of an enormous flood of cyclists, and on the left a 1938 poster asking cyclists to "Set other road users an example" with respect to the Highway Code

Delightful poster at the London Transport Museum about the Woolwich Free Ferry, showing some cyclists presumably wanting to get on the ferry.

Poster at the London Transport Museum: "Londoners like to bike": These vehicles are carrying ... 69 people who could all ... be on this one bus. Click on the picture to see the pictures, which really tell a good story.

Exhibit showing cyclists (or rather, just each bike and safety clothing suspended) on a cycle lane, at the London Transport Museum. Shame that these don't represent the actual range of cyclists - why not cycle chic instead?

An attractive and raised crossing giving much more priority to pedestrians. This is what should be done in Mill Road, Cambridge.

Just three Sheffield stands at the Wallace Collection - so why is the cavalier laughing?

The Jubilee Bridge - too busy for cycling (though there is a lift)

There's now a remarkable amount of cycle parking near the Houses of Parliament

Sign reads 'All pedal cycles left unattended in this area will be removed by the police' - while there are now multiple blocks of cycle parking across the road.

Attached to the railings of Portcullis House (MPs' offices) - I don't think this bike will be there for long!

Splendidly clear cycle lanes on the descent to the Strand and Waterloo Bridge.

Couldn't the barriers be moved to the far side of the cycle parking?

Ridiculous signage - two lanes of traffic eastbound??

Cycling could be permitted on Meard Street

Road closure well used to provide cycle parking

Steps put in here to inconvenience cyclists, wheelchair-users, people with wheeled suitcases etc - presumably to save them from themselves on the slope into Paddington station.

Paddington - no cycling on the access path above the future Crossrail portal.

No Cycling on this link from Paddington station to Paddington Basin

No Cycling (sign in the dark to the right) on the access to Paddington station from Paddington Basin.

Paddington Basin - new footbridge and two road bridges.

Surprisingly large cycle park under the rebuilt Bishop's Bridge Road, Paddington

Paddington Basin - if the surface wasn't loose chippings it'd be useful for cyclists.

Link to Paddington Basin

St Mary's Hospital, Paddington - a long motorbike rank to the right, lots of cars ahead, surely there's acres of space for cycle stands in front of the blocked-up doorways to the left?

Cut-through from St Mary's Hospital, Paddington - room for cycle parking to the right.

Signage at St Mary's Hospital (now part of Imperial College), Paddington

Well-marked cut-through from Paddington station.

Cut-through from Paddington station.

Very discreet sign for cycle cut-through from Paddington station.

A useful cut-through, apart from the bus queue at the far end.

New contraflow cycle lane on Great Queen Street, London, with No Entry signs without an exemption for cyclists!
