Beware of these at Aldgate... they scared the crap out of me the other day. If you hit one, you're going to be off. https://t.co/E3smhT1GUW Ed: The offending items are known as Orcas.

In ancient times, city planners scratched crude representations into the ground, hoping to summon bike lanes http://t.co/OCst1Oqll4 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shared_lane_marking

Two lanes for cyclists at the Aldersgate roundabout

Alleys immediately east of Liverpool Street station.

A pedal bus in Queen Victoria Street.

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.

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

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

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.

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]

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

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 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.)

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]
