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 hangar

London contractors seem to be quite good at this nowadays.

It's mid-lockdown, but there are lots of bikes at Paddington station (mine included). There's a public tool stand as well.

I'm pretty sure a northbound lane has been closed off here - it's a shame that contraflow cycling wasn't maintained.

Is this a replacement for the stands in #164638 and #164639, removed perhaps to give pedestrians space for social distancing ? Not very impressive.

Cycle stands to be removed - perhaps to give pedestrians space for social distancing

Lane for taxis turning left into Paddington station - cyclists can continue ahead, but need to look out for taxis emerging.

This looked like a way for cyclists to bypass the roundabout - but no.

A cycle contraflow here (instead of parking) would open up access to Paddington station.

The widened footways for social distancing by St Mary's Hospital don't make life any easier for cyclists.

I can't tell how much this is roadworks and how much it's a covid-19 pop-up cycle facility.

More cycle parking needed at St Mary's Hospital, Paddington

Cycle stands but no dropped kerb where there could be a route to and across Paddington Basin.

Not a cycle route, not a cycle stand, but people do ride through here.

Decorative bridge at Paddington Basin - not a cycle route.

Shared-use footway and cycle-sharing station.

The No Cycling sign should be beyond the turning to the left.

The towpath under Bishops Bridge Road, Paddington Basin

Not sure how significant a change this is - most people had cycle reservations anyway.

Cycle parking tucked away around the corner from Paddington station - and a public urinal beyond.

Poor stretch leading to the good towpath past the Hammersmith & City entry to Paddington station.

Huge area of cycle parking (there's even space available!) on an ungated area of London Paddington station.

Overcrowded cycle parking at Paddington station.

Never mind allowing cycling, a security guard told me I wasn't even allowed to take photos here. Some property developers are so up themselves.

Steps put in here to inconvenience cyclists, wheelchair-users, people with wheeled suitcases etc - presumably to save them from themselves on the slope into Paddington station.

Paddington - no cycling on the access path above the future Crossrail portal.

No Cycling on this link from Paddington station to Paddington Basin

Link to Paddington Basin

St Mary's Hospital, Paddington - a long motorbike rank to the right, lots of cars ahead, surely there's acres of space for cycle stands in front of the blocked-up doorways to the left?

Cut-through from St Mary's Hospital, Paddington - room for cycle parking to the right.

Very discreet sign for cycle cut-through from Paddington station.

A useful cut-through, apart from the bus queue at the far end.

Cycle parking between platforms 8 and 9 at Paddington. It all seems full even though this was taken on a Sunday evening. They are mostly toastracks of Sheffield-style stands.

Cycle parking at Paddington Station - lots of spaces, but not enough: all spaces in use.
