New segregated cycleway on the West Carriage Drive, Hyde Park - the left-hand lane is for right-turning cyclists - but in practice cyclists use it in the other direction too.

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

The vast majority of rush-hour cyclists head left on the North Carriage Drive, rather than continuing north of the cycleway.

Hyde Park cycle route crossing the North Carriage Drive

Cathedral Walk, in a new development by Victoria station

Cathedral Walk, in a new development near Victoria station - I think that's a shelf, not a rail for locking bikes to, above the painted cycle.

Rising bollards to keep cars out of this pedestrianised street - overkill perhaps?

Link to Oxford St (and cycle stands in a pool of water)

Cycle cut-through at road closure.

Cycle Superhighway 8 (southbound) passing Millbank Tower. This picture shows how the bright blue surfacing stands out, and the clear labelling of the route number. (See also #31045)

Cycle Superhighway 8 on Millbank in London. The blue cycleway stands out very clearly, and is of a reasonable width.

New toucan crossing over West Carriage Drive

One of the few permitted cycle routes in Kensington Gardens. The level of paranoia in the Royal parks is incredible!

Junction of Brook Gate crossing with the cycle route up the east side of Hyde Park.

The Brook Gate crossing of Park Lane - looking east to Upper Brook Street

Lanesborough Place - private road under the Lanesborough Hotel, and a useful cut-through from Hyde Park Corner to Belgrave Square.

Hyde Park Corner, rush hour - some cyclists use the zebra crossing to the left, but most just wait for traffic to let them through to the Hyde Park cycle route.

Hyde Park Corner - left-hand gate used by cyclists crossing directly from the central island into Hyde Park, right-hand gate used by those taking two stages.

Hyde Park Corner, evening rush hour - cyclists making the one-stage crossing from the central island to Hyde Park conflicting with cyclists turning right from Knightsbridge to the island - all in a hurry before traffic mows them down.

Rush hour on the cycle route along the south side of Hyde Park.
