The bus/car parking lanes on Waterloo Bridge have been converted into wide and properly protected cycle lanes.

The bus/car parking lanes on Waterloo Bridge have been converted into wide and properly protected cycle lanes.

Passageway between the main line and Crossrail (Elizabeth Line) stations at Paddington - the No Cycles sign refers only to the temporary fencing but there's still a huge lack of cycle parking here.

The west end of the Strand was closed to through motor traffic in August. It's still a building site.

Information on the slow conversion of the west end of the Strand to be a pedestrian/cycle route.

Access for bus, taxis and bikes only from Aldwych to the Strand

It would be more useful to actually provide cycle parking rather than just putting up railings with No Cycle Parking stickers.

Start of cycle contraflow lane ahead - and advance green lights for cyclists.

Start of contraflow cycle lane (and bike-sharing station)

The No Cycling sign should be beyond the turning to the left.

Pedestrian cut-through

Start of recently pedestrianised zone

Nice level access to South Molton Street but there's a No Entry sign, alas.

Does there really need to be a cycling ban on Shepherd's Place in this day and age?

No idea what slowing down is meant to achieve. Telling drivers to leave space might make more sense.

Cycle Cull notice, Paddington station

Alexandra Gate Location: Knightsbridge and Belgravia, Westminster (England, UK)

Distance to London is measured from this location, the site of the original Queen Eleanor’s Cross. CITY OF WESTMINSTER On the site now occupied by the statue of King Charles I was erected the original Queen Eleanor's Cross a replica ... [more]

Cycle route to the Hyde Park police station

Is a 'No Cling' sign likely to be legally enforceable?

Cyclists Dismount at the Curzon Gate underpass

Pedestrian Zone sign on South Molton Street

One Way, Dead End ?? Actually, TfL, it's a through road.

No Cycling in this stylish new courtyard development

Cycling is permitted on the short closure between the two halves of Bond Street.

No Cycling (though it would be a useful cut-through avoiding Parliament Square)

No Cycling (though it would be a useful cut-through avoiding Parliament Square)

Pedestrian Priority sign on this route through Kensington Gardens

Three separate No Cycling signs. They really don't want us in the Royal Parks.

Policeman's Path, Hyde Park - closed to (most) motor traffic

Cyclists dismount at these steps - probably sensible.

Now there's a segregated cycleway on the other side of the road the Royal Parks want to keep the west side pedestrian-only. Good luck with that.

Not sure how significant a change this is - most people had cycle reservations anyway.

London's East-West Cycle Superhighway seems to be in use behind the camera as well as in front

No Cycling across the canal - as a cyclist whizzes past.

Wonderfully illiterate notice on a possibly abandoned bike (location inexact).

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

Have you ever seen a backwards road sign before? This is very clever...

Signs about new cycle parking for season ticket holders at Paddington station in the process of being moved to Platform 10 (at rear).

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

Carnaby St pedestrianised area, no cycling exemption

There are now reserved spaces for bikes on First Great Western HSTs out of Paddington

Information on carrying bikes on First Great Western HSTs

Cyclists Stay Back stickers on buses.

No buses except buses? How odd.

Good practice - Do Not Overtake Cyclists signs at roadworks on the Embankment

Lovely graphic created by PleaseCycle, which uses the CycleStreets journey planner, to describe the three routing modes.

Totally pointless Cyclists Dismount sign - there's plenty of space and very little traffic.

No Cycling along this path in Hyde Park


The rotated 'Cycle lane <--' sign is a potential source of confusion.

Sign should have cycle exception.

Motorcycles are now permitted in London bus lanes - thanks Boris! Not very pleasant for cyclists.

An indication of cycle parking in the Selfridge's car park?

Cycle parking for season ticket holders only at Marylebone station.

Cycle parking for season ticket holders only at Marylebone station.

No cycling on Primrose Hill - though the route ahead would be an ideal alternative to Prince Albert Road.

Sign reads: "Following a trial of the double tier rack, Westminster City Council and English Heritage have indicated their opposition to any use of such racking in a permanent design, as being too visability intrusive and not in keeping to ... [more]

Olympic cycling events causing disruption already in central London!

Sign explaining the changes on Exhibition Road. This £30 million project eventually opened, see:

"All of these bikes are in the driver's blind spot. Undertaking at junctions can be fatal." True, as left-turning vehicles are one of the biggest threats to cycling. The THINK! budget has been severely slashed in the current round of ... [more]

Pedestrian priority in Hyde Park

No cycling in Dean's Yard - but driving is OK.

The Inns of Court are not very cycle-friendly (despite being an Oxbridge-style haven in the heart of London).

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

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

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

Cycling exhibit at the London Transport Museum.

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.

Cycling exhibit at the London Transport Museum: "Londoners like to bike"

A wonderful historical drawing - at the London Transport Museum, welcoming in the new suburban buses: "We used to have to cycle to the station; but now we have the bus."

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

Wonderful sign spotted in Covent Garden.

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.

Ridiculous signage - two lanes of traffic eastbound??

Cycling could be permitted on Meard Street

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

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

Sign at entrance to Hyde Park: "Pedestrians have priority"

Little Venice - sign reads 'Cyclists Caution ... Please slow down and dismount if necessary'.

This lane is signed as No Entry in both directions - for emergency vehicles attending incidents at Paddington station, but potentially useful for southbound cyclists.

Considerate cycling permitted in Hyde Park

London Metropolitan Police: Warning to cyclists

'No entry except cycles' in London. (This might just be a turned sign though - not clear.)
