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

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.

Pop-up barrier

Modal filter

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

This looked like a way for cyclists to bypass the roundabout - but no.

Obstruction to prevent speeding cyclists

New contraflow cycle lane, blocked by a Royal Mail van which forces cyclists out into oncoming traffic.

Barriers at the pedestrian underpass beneath the Harrow Road

Quietway 2, closed.

Steps from Ramillies St to Oxford St

What's the point of the cycle lane?

Stepped access only from Bishops Bridge Road to the towpath

There's a new cycleway to the left of these signs, along Constitution Hill

Delivery of linen to nearby hotels regularly blocks the cycleway

More inconsiderate parking and rubbish on the cycle route

Inconsiderate vehicle parking

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

Stepped access to the Regents Canal towpath here.

With luck a ramp could be put in here when Boris's Embankment cycle-expressway is constructed!

Road closure and cycle parking at Fleet Street - but why not put in a proper through route for cycling?

Cycling could be permitted on Meard Street. Alexei Sayle starts a bike ride from near here: https://youtu.be/7gk6eZwU6Lo

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.

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]
