Once again, luxury car, prat plate, and entitled parking. Apparently it's OK for him to park here because he can't get through the restrictions. 666S @YPLAC https://t.co/850agk4xSY

Come on @RBKC - you are a huge gap in London’s safer cycle network. We can still see the shadow lines and bolt holes on Ken High St where the bike lane used to be. Let’s work together to put in a safe route before anyone else ge ... [more]

Racks on Westbourne Park Road, Notting Hill.

Bike hangar on Talbot Road.

Looks like as many cycle parking spaces as possible have been crammed onto this island on Talbot Road at it's junction with Portobello Road, Notting Hill.

Portobello Road - the unofficial looking blue plaque suggests George Orwell once lived here.

Pembridge Villas, Notting Hill

Zebra crossing of Pembridge Road leading to Portobello Road, Notting Hill.

The Guyana High Commission is opposite the Embassy of the Russian Federation.

Racks at Notting Hill gate outside the Coronet Theatre.

The popular Kensington High Street cycle route has been replaced by...parked cars 👏🏽

Shared space with more outdoor seating during COVID

@MikeyCycling @RBKC @mragilligan @willnorman @theJeremyVine First wands removed in front of Dutch embassy tonight https://t.co/Q3sKEubE49

To think the @RBKC might actually remove these bicycle lanes. These child friendly, eco positive, carbon neutral bicycle lanes. Surely not? #TheRoyalBoroughOfPetrolAndPollution #KensingtonHighStreet #SaveTheLane #CitizensAssemblies https:// ... [more]

The world’s first ambulance bicycle - exhibit at the Science Museum

Pedestrian priority at sideroads

Bicycles at the Science Museum

Automated delivery robot being displayed at the Science Museum. These create an obstruction for footway users.

New entrance courtyard at the V&A - plenty of space for cycle parking, but of course the design values are more important.

Quietway markings have appeared on Exhibition Road

Cycle stands and cycle lane.

Route signs for cyclists continuing from Holland Walk on the A402.

Cyclists Dismount sign at the top of Holland Walk, no dropped kerb or obvious way to continue.

Awkward place to put the cycle lane on Holland Park - and is that really meant to be wide enough for two-way cycling?

Southern end of the Holland Walk cycleway

Two-way cycleway on NCN route 4 past roadworks.

No pedestrians in the temporary cycle lane (NCN route 4)

The sign shows a contraflow cycle lane, but in fact it's a two-way lane (and NCN route 4).

Do Not Overtake Cyclists sign at roadworks - although cyclists can also use the shared-use footway.

Shared-use signs on NCN route 4 - perhaps it's a new Toucan crossing?

NCN route 4 passing beneath the Albert Bridge

Cycle routes right (NCN route 4 under the Albert Bridge) and left, to the bridge

Road works on NCN route 4

NCN route 4 on shared-use footway - and cycle parking on the pontoon for houseboat residents.

Right-turn lane on NCN route 4

It's not obvious, but the park bylaws on the rear of the sign indicate that cycling through to the King's Road is not allowed.

Bike-sharing station at the Chelsea Academy, but no ordinary bike parking visible.

It's really not very clear that NCN route 4 turns right here.

Whilst this cycle parking attached to a lamppost is fun and attractive, it indicates political failure to allocate proper space for cycle parking
