What genius came up with this? A cycle lane that's also a parking bay. This is a one-way street where cycles are allowed to go against the flow. So when vehicles are parked in these bays you have to ride directly into oncoming traffic.

Stainless cycle parking stands with a crossbar in High Holborn, Central London. (Location approximate.)

Roadworks signage, Farringdon Street. Mirror for turning HGVs.

The British public love riding bikes. They just don't like riding them in motor traffic http://t.co/6Bm6cPzJWH

Big crowds and lots of media starting to gather for #space4cycling flashride! http://t.co/qmSzAenOLP

Beech Street Underpass Location: Barbican, London (England, United Kingdom) 31 March 2013. Underpass running beneath the Barbican.

Cycle lane sufficiently wide to avoid the dooring zone.

Cycle hire point.

Not much space for cyclists.

Fantastic wayfinding feature. Also has loudspeaker with sounds of dock work of yesteryear.

Location may not be accurate but here are some racks underneath a stairway, and there's an ice rink behind. Near Liverpool Street station.

Very limited cycle parking (up some steps) at the Broadgate complex

The Broadgate complex was definitely not built to be permeable for cycling.

After the Olympics... the London Triathlon - with barriers along the Embankment to keep pedestrians off the road.

Road closed except for cyclists from the Victoria Embankment

Inconvenient but safe access to Blackfriars Bridge from the west.

Cycle parking and access (beyond a curious 'dead space') at the Victoria Embankment

Punk Mandeville - one of the London 2012 Olympics mascots dotted around the city.

Good cycle-permeable cut-through here at Monument.

Cycle parking needed at Monument. Perhaps just use the yellow-lined area just to the right of this picture and convert that to on-street cycle parking.

At the end of LCC's #theBigRide Poster trikes promote the cause.

Taken from the upper deck of a number 26 bus. Rather curious road layout here.

Some cycle racks lurk behind a 'phone box in Bell Yard.

Covered secure cycle parking for the Maughan library.

A stylish single speed bike (on the freewheel cog) it locked up textbook style with the extension cable looped around the rack - a feat only practical on this type of stand when there are no other bikes alongside.

A sign agonizes about the compexity of providing sufficient cycle parking for students at the library, but pleasingly admits additional cycle parking will be provided in the summer.

The streets of central London are delightfully quiet and empty on this Saturday in early February. In the far distance there's a boris bike point.

A cabinet in an exhibition in the Maughan Library to commemorate the centenary of the death of pioneering surgeon Joseph Lister. These lead button sutures look rather bike-like, and were developed by Lister to hold together deep wounds. ... [more]

Sign at the entrance to the Maughan library telling cyclists to dismount.

(Exact location unknown) Sign stating that bikes can be removed under Section 149 of the Highways Act 1980. Reproduced from http://twitpic.com/6nyn9j by @els76uk

Advertising Advanced Stop Lines - one of the most useful safety improvements for cyclists - as if used correctly they can help stop being cut up at junctions.

Sign trying to explain what train services bicycles are supported.

need about 10 stands here

at least 5 stands needed here. Lots of space.

Cycle parking needed here, lots of space for it.

Rather disappointing cycle racks for students at the Guildhall School of Drama. Note that many of the bikes seem to have red seat covers.

Boris Bikes in Silk Street

Boris Bikes at Moorfields

St Pauls Cathedral, and an advisory cycle lane.

Two bikes parked in a jolly fashion one on top of the other. But it seems that the authorities in this area are losing patience with this sort of thing as there are lots of posts and railings with no bike signs.

New cycle track in the City of London - lights on but still shrouded.

Pedestrian congestion - and its only the middle of the afternoon in February. Lots of activity on this bridge, big group parties, loads of people with cameras, and there was a film crew a bit further on.

Looking towards the distant Tower Bridge from the Millennium Bridge.

A typical scene on the popular Millennium Bridge. I think they built it too narrow. Never mind, only 990 years now before the next one.

View from the Millennium Bridge, where we can see the automatic rubbish eater with a big sign justifying its continued funding for collecting 40 tonnes of waste per annum.

The northern end of the Millennium Bridge - with non-standard Cyclists Dismount sign

St. Paul's Cathedral

Looking onto the Millennium Bridge. Cycling clearly not permitted, but at least they can be walked.

Work to install the London Cycle Hire scheme. Lets hope its as successful as http://www.camcycle.org.uk/newsletters/63/article14.html
