Cycle Parking as seen from the View Tube and café.

Cycle lane with cars parking in it every few yards.

Cycle lane both ways sign, cars parked every few yards.

Bikeworks cycle hire at the London Olympics.

Ground mark in concrete on the cycleway through the Olympic grounds in London.

Cycle leaning against a post, probably because no other cycle parking in the area. The informational sign labours at length why swimming is not allowed in the dock, yet in the background an open water swimming event, sponsored by British Ga ... [more]

This sign has been 'edited' presumably to remove a no. In the background are swmmers in Royal Victoria Dock, and a Spiller's Millennnium Mill is on the right Taken from the bridge across victoria dock, which has 80 steps, and a lift.

The olympic construction site.

Cycle Parking by the View Tube (which was unfortunately not open to the public at the time we visited) and the view of the Olympic construction work.

Towards the Olympic Construction site.

Diversionary route to the Greenway via the Olympic construction site.

Lock gates on St Thomas Creek

It looks like this used to be a route, but its overgrown and strewn with litter now so it has probably been abandoned.

A dead end!

Sadly the Greenway is closed here and there's a rather awkward and hard to find diversionary route round - that took us through the Olympic construction site.

The Greenway - a disused railway line - see #29722 for opening times.

The Greenway - a disused railway line - see #29722 for opening times. The Olympic Stadium looms.

A rather lovely industrial building visible from the Greenway - a disused railway line - see #29722 for opening times.

The Greenway - a disused railway line - see #29722 for opening times and to compare the original with this rebranded gateway.

The Greenway - a disused railway line - see #29722 for opening times. This looks like a (rather expensive?) rebranding exercise - presumably to spruce up this wonderful abandoned railway route in time for some big local event in 2012.

Good view of Canary Wharf from the Greenway - a disused railway line - see #29722 for opening times.

Curious that the cycle markings here are on the dashed line.

Plaistow - or is it Chicken City ?

Chargeable Lane - groovy name

Useless signage, and a horribly narrow cycle lane. At last we're beginning to see signs of the end of this sort of rubbish facilities - in London at least.

Sorry about the over exposed photo - but I needed to record the advanced stop line (ASL here) permits solo motorcycles too.

Barking Road

Pavement cycleway

Cycleway roadworks.

The cycleway here has been pulped!

The cycleway along here is an unpleasant experience because of the busy road environment.

The road crossing point on the far side is so far round the corner into the side road that when you're standing there it is very difficult to see the fast traffic turning there. Horrible!

World Travel Market 2009 - a remarkable number of cycling maps being distributed (especially in Poland!)

Cycle and motorbike parking at London City Airport - beyond all the car-parking (of course bikes are a bomb threat whereas no-one would think of using a car).
