Upper Phillimore Gardens should have an W.-bound cycling contraflow to allow us to proceed to Holland Park from Holland Street

RBKC has been promising a cyclists' contraflow on Holland Street heading E. to Upper Phillimore Gardens. Let's have it installed as the natural extension to that already existing further E. in Holland Street.

The Crown Estate deliberately blocks York Passage with a half closed gate and large planters the W. end and in the middle, together with 'cyclists dismount' signs. This is an important entrance into Kensington Gardens and should have all … [more]

the whole of Kensington High street is a nightmare for cyclists, no room at all for them most times of the day, there's no convenient back route parallel to the street.terrible left filter at Earls Court Rd making it v dangerous to anyone … [more]

This junction would benefit from an ASL on the east bound section. In the morning, cyclists bunch up at the front of the queue when they inevitably hit the red lights.

Holland Park roundabout is busy, aggressive and has a big bump in the road at the lights coming from the Shepherds Bush side.

I always find getting through King's Rd a challenging task. The route for a cyclist is too narrow. As this road is mostly jammed the cars tend to push the cyclists towards the pavement (not enough space to get through). This is the reason I … [more]

I found in map my area Holland Av is a major problem for cyclists as mentioned in map, it's true I can not cycle on the road there is no space for cyclists, council should make space on the pavement for cyclists because too wide pavement … [more]

Heavy traffic and no room for cyclists

Cyclists are encouraged to cycle through the park and then along Holland Street - but at the junction of Holland Street must turn left or right rather than carrying straight on towards Holland Park. It might be difficult to arrange safely … [more]

Left turn only filter light into Earls Court road leaves non turning cyclists stranded in the middle of the road. Junction needs remodelling (with rest of KHS) to be more cycle friendly

If you're lucky and traffic is not heavy, it's great cycling from Nothing Hill Gate to Shepherds Bush roundabout on Holland Park Av. However, when traffic is dense, it is simply impossible to get through traffic on a bike. As someone … [more]

Although the crossing over Knightsbridge isn't that bad, the cycle lane going south-bound on William Street is a joke. Large delivery trucks (and frankly, wide cars for diplomats) park and squeeze pass here, making negotiating it for the … [more]

This junction is very difficult for cyclists. There isn't enough room coming south-bound from Chelsea Bridge Road to get to the front of traffic, and turning right from Chelsea Bridge is also a struggle.

The section of Holland Park Avenue between Shepherds bush roundabout and Portland road is dangerous (as already noted in the mark on Portland Road). There is an excellent contra-flow cycle route on Ladbroke Road though which avoids all the … [more]

Dangerous exit from cycle route across Ken Gardens rightinto Ken High Street across busy traffic lanes. Vehicles often illegally parked ( no loading at any time) outside Hotel)

Exit from park turning right dangerous across contra flow motor traffic. Left turn then right into Palace gate has similar problems due to light filters

Despite a colleague being killed here 2 years ago nothing has been done re illegal parking by cars and lorries. No ASL enforcement Cars turning often turning across cyclists at several junctions along high street

After heading south on Hortensia Road, when trying to turn right onto King's Road it is pretty difficult unless you walk across the zebra crossing - there's just too much traffic. I often end up in the middle of the road.

How the hell do you legally get onto the cycle lane here if you're coming from the south?

The Kings Road Beaufort Street junction is orientated to favour traffic over pedestrians. It is a busy shopping and pedestrian area. The crossings for pedestrians have not been raised to encourage traffic to slow down and there is only a … [more]

The road narrows just here but there are cars turning left and going straight on. I always end up in a bike sandwich trying to going straight ahead up the much wider Queen's Gate and keeping clear of all the parked cars there.

I see many eastbound cyclists turning into the park at this entrance as I exit to head for Notting Hill. There is absolutely no safe way for them to to do this if the traffic is not stopped at the lights. Many of them make heart stopping … [more]

Royal Hospital Road and Pimlico Road - these roads are dangerous as they are narrow and often used by busses driving into or coming from Victoria Station.

Crossing Cheyne Walk at Battersea Bridge is treacherous for cyclists and pedestrians alike. Cycle lanes along embankment and leading into Kings Road needed for safe access to local schools & shops

There's a toucan crossing here but coming southbound you can't get to it as Cromwell Crescent is one way northbound only. Needs 2 way cycling in that street.

Traffic turning left onto Sloane Square from Sloane St rarely respects the right of way of riders already on the square

Junction of Walmer Road and Hippodrome Place. A completely blind corner close to park, nursery school and primary school. A typical cycling route crosses the blind exit from Hippodrome Place through bollards to head from Walmer Road towards … [more]

No cycling provision along Sloane Steet in both directions despite many cyclists using it to access Hyde Park.

Sloane Square is a racetrack, not suitable for not so confident cyclists - links up cycling routes.

Cyclists are highly exposed travelling West-East on the Hollard Park/Shepherd's Bush roundabout. Going East-West the bike lanes are broken up and not timed with the lights, and blend into the sidewalk in front of the Shepherd's Bush cinema, … [more]

The area from Hammersmith to kensington is not particularly joined up. THis is a particularly busy route and cycle route is very convaluted. Cycle routes disappear and it seems crazy that you cannot cycle through parts of the parks.

Neville Terrace. It is almost impossible to turn right into Fulham road coming out of Neville Terrace. Cars are aggressive to bikes here and so many cars turn it is dangerous for bikes.

Holland Park Ave. This is a 2-lane road that seriously needs a bike or bus lane. It is a very highly-used cycle route but whenever traffic gets a bit bad (especially westbound in the evening rush hour) the two lanes are so tightly packed, … [more]

High Street Kensington is one segment of the Great Western Road which is exceptionally difficult and dangerous for cyclists. It has numerous bus stops, traffic lights, is extremely congested virtually at all times. Yet just yards away there … [more]

Albert Bridge has been refurbished, but width restrictions at the north end and lack of cycle markings mean that of the three bridges in this area (Battersea, Albert, Chelsea), none provide a safe and easy crossing for bikes at peak times. … [more]

The Kings Road should be the perfect cycling destination. Nice shops, nice road, nice speed. But the ability to park causes dangerous bottle necks and puts cyclists at risk of doors flying open. Take away the parking and put in a (BUS FREE) … [more]

On this massive highway the cyclists are supposed to cycle next to the cars. This is life-threatening. Even me, usually a daredevil when it comes to cycling next to automobilists, am scared to cycle here despite my many years of experience. … [more]

There is a width restriction on Albert Bridge which is enforced by a narrowing of the road at the entrance to the bridge to stop any oversized vehicles from entering the bridge. However it also means the road is too narrow for a car and … [more]

Off Kensington High St, identify a route going east-west, so that you do not have to do battle with crammed traffic, from the entrance to Holland Park in the west to Kensington Church Street in the east, along Kensington High Street. It's … [more]

Off Kensington High St, identify a route going east-west, so that you do not have to do battle with crammed traffic, from the entrance to Holland Park in the west to Kensington Church Street in the east, along Kensington High Street. It's … [more]

It's the bridge crossings that still scare me out of my wits. There must be something we could do?

Very simple idea ..from 7 until 9 am there is a bus/cycle lane all the way from shepherds bush to Lancaster gate. Then cyclists can go into the park. Cars will be congested but soon either stop or go up onto the flyover or use other … [more]

Notting Hill Gate, from the Shepherds Bush roundabout to the peak and beyond at Clanrincade Gardens, is a truly horrid road. The pavements are insanely wide, but bicycles are not allowed on them. Instead, when going uphill (east) we must … [more]

Warwick Road badly needs a workover as the cars are very aggressive about cyclists. But an easy solution to the neighbourhood would be making at least the far end of Longridge road (marked) two way for bike and many of the other one way … [more]

on every road that has a bus/cycle lane. the buses leave the roads in a terrible condition and make it another obstacle to avoid when cycling! a superhighway route that goes out to the west would be nice, maybe along highstreet kensington … [more]

The road from Shepherds Bush to Notting Hill is a very dangerous road with very little safety considerations given to cyclists by other road users and TFL.
