Along the whole length of Epping New Road (a major access road to north-east London and Epping Forest), a narrow advisory cycle lane puts cyclists in conflict with national speed limit traffic. This lane is poorly surfaced with a ridge of tarmac preventing cyclists from riding a safe distance from the road edge. At regular intervals (wherever a side road or parking area joins the main road), cyclists are signed onto the pavement, which is often in a poor state of repair, where they forfeit right of way to joining traffic before rejoining the main carriageway. This infrastructure effectively prevents access to the forest by any but the most confident cyclists.
