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

Some sheffield-style racks are already here, but just beyond is the location of the London Cycle Hire scheme.

This segregated cycle lane - with double double-yellow lines comes to an abrupt halt!

Holborn

DSC00112 Location: Cheapside, London (England, United Kingdom) This is some road works for the installation of the cycle hire scheme on Queen Victoria Street eastbound just south of St Pauls Cathedral. Ironically there is a sign telli ... [more]

Cycle space in convertible area on refurbished Class 317 train, Cambridge-London Liverpool Street route.

This shot shows how short is the gap from the segregated bike lane into the carriageway. (See also #16556 and #16557.)

This shot shows that there is no room for a motor vehicle and a cyclist who has exited the segregated bike lane to be able to pass safely. (See also #16556 and #16558.)

There are no signs to warn cyclists that the segregated bike lane ends suddenly. The lane goes round a corner so you can't see the blockage before you enter into it. To be able to continue your journey northbound you need to pull into the ... [more]

This image (taken 11.4.09) shows: a) the changes to the layout of the northbound carriageways, and b) the reduction in the bike lane of Blackfriars Bridge. Weekdays this bridge is busy. It is well used by cyclists. However there are n ... [more]

This shot was taken on Blackfriars Bridge (northbound) on the evening of Good Friday (April 10) 2009 - just two days after a cyclist was killed by an HGV at the Elephant and Castle, approx 2km from here. There are no signs alerting cyclis ... [more]

(See also #16545 and #16547.) Presumably due to works taking place at the northern end of Blackfriars Bridge northbound #16553, the road layout has been reworked. The bike lane has been reduced from around 90 inches to 43 inches and at i ... [more]

After a cyclist was killed in 2004 on Blackfriars Bridge, the layout was rejigged (read the history of it all here: http://209.85.229.132/search?q=cache:ip8m6gxANosJ:www.ralphsmyth.me.uk/citycyclists/blackfriars.html+city+cyclists+blackfria ... [more]

On some City roads, cyclists make up 27% of the traffic at peak commuting times. Cycle parking in the Square Mile is in terribly short supply despite new racks being added in 2008. Most of the buildings in Austin Friars have railings round ... [more]

Cycle lane with hatching to give space away from the traffic, in the tunnel at the Barbican.

Failure by Spitalfields Space Management to provide cycle parking.

Sculpture near Liverpool Street station.

Three sided 'no cycling' sign (though only half a sign in total remains!) on the Barbican Highwalks. Seems a rather unnecessary restriction.

Developer of this system in discussion with others.

Good quality cycle parking outside the Barbican.

Watling St cycle route closed by building work in front of St Paul's.

Watling Street - if 20mph was fast enough for the Romans it's fast enough today.

Parallel to Upper Thames Street - potentially a useful cycle route (linking to Southwark Bridge)

Queen St, City of London - a fine new cycling route will lead directly to Southwark Bridge, ahead (where there are segregated cycle lanes - not visible here).

Slightly confusing signage - the cycle route is up Plumtree Court to the left, while the no-cycling sign applies under Holborn Viaduct.

St Bride Street - a fairly recent road closure (except for cyclists).

North end of Blackfriars Bridge - one wide bike lane, a separate bus lane and one traffic lane change to two traffic lanes and the bike lane/ASL.

Good quality, accessible crossing in London. Note how the pedestrian crossing is level at the middle, rather than being varied in height, and that there are no barriers or guardrails.

Not sure of exact location
