65511Photo #65511St Kilda Road is one of the busiest roads for cycle traffic heading into the city. It has had some controversy due to a bottle neck over the bridge heading into the city where shared use paths have been frustrating both cyclists and pedestrians. Cyclist have been vilified for using both the path and the road. Big issue has been with the two taxi ranks heading into the city in front of the Arts Centre and the Train Station and the reduction to one lane heading into the city. However this route into the city has long been closed to all but trams, taxis, service/emergency vehicles and bicycles.

Recent work is a huge improvement with fully separated lanes and a painted lane over the bridge - removing the need for shared use. It is still quite patchy in places.

Paint stopping and starting here. This is going over the bridge. There is now one lane. You can see the old shared use - although there was paint and signs this was continuously ignored by pedestrians.

Location is approximate.

For some reason the paint just disappears here.

This is a particularly worrisome stretch where the taxis are pulling in and out without adequately checking for cyclists.

65506Photo #65506Sheffield stands in the Melbourne City Centre. These have popped up all through the city centre since I was last there just a few months ago. Very sleek and stylish (very Melbourne).

Sheffield stands tend to be the only type of public cycle parking found in Melbourne. I'm very happy to see more of them.

65505Photo #65505Cafe cycle parking seems to becoming a trend in this area. This parking is also new to the area. The cafe owners are clearly supportive and have added a convenient path in the landscaping to access the cafe.

Still very challenging to find anywhere to park a bicycle further down the street in the residential areas. Not even a street sign to lock them to. (Where do they think these cafe bikes come from?)

65503Photo #65503My favourite local cafe from when I lived in Melbourne. 2 years ago they had temporary bike racks that they would place in the car bay each day. I was very please to see that this has now become a permanent arrangement. Didn't have time to chat to the owner on this day but I do know he is very supportive of cycling.

This cafe is right in front of the train station and is close to some excellent cycling tracks for casual and road cyclists.

I've never seen anything like this in Melbourne before.
