Tricycle by Michael Craig-Martin, at the Foundling Museum, London - referring to themes of loneliness and abandonment.

Modal filter

It would be good to have more room for cyclists to pass the barrier under the railway.

Advanced light for cyclists

To get onto the contraflow cycleway to the right you'd have to go left to find a dropped kerb. And the sign doesn't mention that this is NCN route 4.

Cyclesuperhighway CS6 south from Blackfriars Bridge

NCN route 4 past the new One Blackfriars tower

No Entry Except Cycles between Waterloo and Blackfriars

Whatever modal filter or rising bollards were here have been removed.

No Entry Except Cycles between Waterloo and Blackfriars

Cycle contraflow, with lots of commuters walking to Waterloo station

Modal filter

New traffic-calming outside a pub.

Lots of cycle parking at this Kings College London building.

I really don't know why anti-terrorist barriers are needed on a cycleway. Obviously there are none on the road to the right.

The bus/car parking lanes on Waterloo Bridge have been converted into wide and properly protected cycle lanes.

The west end of the Strand was closed to through motor traffic in August 2021. It's STILL a building site in March 2022, with no through access for bikes at the west end.

Advanced light for cycles

Trixi mirror, pedestrian countdown and advanced lights for cycles - all sorts of clever things.

Bike hangar and community garden (no cycling) in a gap where the Brunswick Centre was supposed to be extended.

Cargo bike and quite a few bike stands on Marchmont St

If there was a modal filter here (as on OpenCycleMap), it's gone.

Just a few cycle stands at this modern school

Advanced lights for cycles, and what might be a cycleway under construction.

St John's Square, Clerkenwell - a nice modern plaza, so why isn't there more cycle parking?

Two sets of cycle stands, Clerkenwell

A typical city alley.

Absolutely no need for the chains, unless they're actually meant to stop cyclists.

Cycle parking and St John's Gate - which looks like an ideal cycle route but is almost blocked on the other side.

Route sign on route C6; and right turns only in 2 stages.

Advanced lights for cycles on to Blackfriars Bridge

Surely one of these routes - in Greenwich Park or behind the Queen's House - could be made into a proper cycle route parallel to the A206?

High density cycle parking at the Queen's House, Greenwich - it's just about possible to lock the rear of a bike to the higher ones.

Modal filter, Maze Hill

Why are the Royal Parks so obstructive to cycling?

Temporary closure - not a pop-up Covid-19 measure, but roadworks. No problem for cyclists, despite the sign being right on top of the cycle symbol.

Cycle parking at Maze Hill station

Supposedly open to Human-powered vehicles, but it doesn't really work for cycling.

Signs say 'Human-powered vehicles only' but the barriers make it very difficult to cycle.

Cycle parking on new traffic-free street across the canal from Paddington station

Shared-use bridge across the canal to Paddington station (with steps and ramps)

Bike-sharing station and bridge to Paddington station across the canal (ramp this end, steps and a lift at the other).

Rising bollards/modal filter - having been closed for a full ten years for Crossrail construction work, access on the southwestern side of Paddington station has been opened up again.

Cycle parking and bus stop near Paddington station

Room for more cycle parking near Paddington station

Cycle parking at the bus stops near the Crossrail (Elizabeth Line) station at Paddington

Modal filter on the ramp to/from the Crossrail (Elizabeth Line) station at Paddington - those aren't Sheffield stands to the left, they're just to keep the doors clear.

Passageway between the main line and Crossrail (Elizabeth Line) stations at Paddington - the No Cycles sign refers only to the temporary fencing but there's still a huge lack of cycle parking here.

Cycle Lane Closed, fend for yourself on York Way

Modal filter off Agar Grove

Absolutely horrible speed ramps in the Maiden Lane development - no wonder there are so many SUVs here.

Route through the Maiden Lane development

Access to the Maiden Lane development - there's no point going much further by bike, but cycle parking is needed here.

Tempting, but there are a lot of steps ahead.

This is clearly a pedestrian route in to the Maiden Lane development, but why not make it clear whether there's cycle access?

Cycle parking on Camley St and ramp to the Regent's Canal towpath

Ramp from the Regent's Canal towpath to Camley St

The Regent's Canal towpath, and a shared-use route to the right to Handyside St

The Regent's Canal towpath to the right, link to the Coal Drops Yard and the Somerstown Bridge to the left.

Barriers on the Somerstown Bridge across the Regent's Canal

Cycleway symbol and closed hours on the Somerstown Bridge across the Regent's Canal

Surely a short section of shared-use path would allow cyclists to turn left and join this segregated cycleway, rather than being held while motor traffic turns left?

Cyclists have to wait while left-turning motor traffic has priority - but a segregated cycleway starts immediately to the left, so surely a short bypass could have been constructed?

On-street cycle parking at the Royal National Institution of Blind People

Pedestrian crossings on the Tavistock Place cycle route - what do the colours signify?

Plenty of space at the Foundling Museum, but no cycle parking.

Path through Brunswick Square Gardens

Coram's Fields is now a children-only park, No hope of a cycle route then.

Great work, officer.

Lambs Conduit Passage - not a cycleway.

Misleading sign - it refers to the road to the left.

Cycle parking at a new housing development

Cut-through towards Guy's Hospital and London Bridge station.

Pop-up area for pedestrians outside a college

Cycle contraflow and bike hangar

Bike hangar plus stands opposite an excellent pub.

Cycle parking at Guy's Hospital

About 100m of Great Maze Street is strictly pedestrian-only - it's still a very useful route to and from London Bridge station (and of course The Shard).
