Got hit by a driver today at Mile End/Grove Rd junct. MASSIVE THANKS to Alexander @pedalmeapp who was SO giving of his time to call police/ambulance. Thanks to passby bike mechanic who checked over my bike. Thanks to @metpoliceuk & @Ldn ... [more]

Bit confused about this. (Violet Rd E3 / Morris Rd E14 )

This road is between Shoreditch High Street Station and Brick Lane. [to be developed as housing and a park -]

Dockless electric bikes to hire outside Shoreditch High Street station.

Great to see some bollards go in to prevent pavement parking on West St @TowerHamletsNow . I wonder how much installation of each bollard costs to stop drivists...

There aren't many people using it today due to Coronavirus, but Cycleway 3's crossing of Sutton Street has now been fully painted and the Belisha beacons switched on.

Dear Sir/Madam, As discussed with some of our neighbors, we would like to request the installation of 2 bike hangars in our area (in front of 332 Old Ford Road). We cycle on a daily basis and have to carry the bike upstairs everyday as w ... [more]

Cut-through to Monthope Road - shame about the barrier right across the dropped kerb!

Cut-through to Commercial Street via Resolution Plaza - dropped kerb to the right

Cut-through, Aldgate East

CS2 at Aldgate East - cycle lights and No Right Turn except in two stages sign

Road closure (except cycles)

Really not an ideal cycle route, except for MTBs.

This barrier needs opening up for cycling.

Sign reads 'Do not chain bicycles to this post' - but it's only one bicycle, secured with a cable, not a chain, to the other pole.

Access through this route is probably permissive


Route over the railway tracks

This is a very populated residential area (will be even more when ongoing constructions are complete) with no cycle parking space. The closest cycle parking is around 800m away, at the DLR station. This place is convenient and accessible to ... [more]

Regent's Canal towpath - not much clearance in the bridge.

The inclines at locks on this section of Regent's Canal have a brick surface.

Traffic-free link towards Liverpool Street station - dropped kerbs needed.

Road closed to motor traffic, open to everyone else.

Covered racks

Racks under an arch at Limehouse DLR station.

I thought this sight of two Plant Locks in this sunken area was rather depressing. This should be a play area not the ambiguous idea of a bit of green mixed with bike parking.

On street bike rental.

Stickers all over the cycle signs!

Brick Lane

Tower Bridge is being repaired - pedestrians can still pass and cycles must be pushed along (except for cycles used by disabled people).

Tower Bridge roadworks mean cyclists must dismount and make their way among the tourists. October to December 2016.

Here a coach is unloaded at a floating bus stop. Quick, safe, easy. Will locate laters.

CS2 is closed so one lane is closed for a temp cycle lane rather than throwing cyclists in with lorries. Good work!
