Pedal-holder on a new Class 720 Bombardier Aventra train, used on Greater Anglia outer-suburban routes eg to Cambridge. Too fiddly to be useful.

Instructions for cycle storage on a new Class 720 Bombardier Aventra train, used on Greater Anglia outer-suburban routes eg to Cambridge. The strap is useful, but the pedal-holder is too fiddly.

Space for 4 bikes on a new Class 720 Bombardier Aventra train, used on Greater Anglia outer-suburban routes eg to Cambridge. Actually there's room for more here, even without using the door lobbies.

Cycle area at the north end of a new Class 720 Bombardier Aventra train, used on Greater Anglia outer-suburban routes eg to Cambridge. There's a similar wheelchair space at the other end of the five-carriage train.

So this guy decided to drive over the pavement and down the Embankment cycle highway earlier. Till he was thwarted by the sharp speed bump. Lemming https://t.co/eh8NZc9Bs4

This is an 'inclinator' - a kind of travelling lift. It does accommodate a bike and is free to use. The paths around here are all footpaths so no cycling.

Shiny new bike contraflow in Wood St @cityoflondon Used to be shared use pavement & horrid conflict during office hours. Much improved.
