Weird goings-on: Westminer Bridge bus stop cycle bypass is becoming an emblem of bad compromises over safer cycling. And the evidence is looking increasingly suspect.

The Tour du Danger as we left Oval junction, November 2011 Credit @ zefrog I haven't blogged for months and months. To some extent, I have felt overwhelmed by all the new and shiny cycling things that are going on. It is exactly  four years ago that many of...

Flurry of good, bad and downright ugly plans for new cycle routes on the edges of central London

Thanks to muddy thinking by the Royal Parks Foundation, one of Britain''s most iconic buildings to be the scene of Europe's most laughable cyling infrastructure
TfL's proposal is for safe space for cycling at Buckingham Palace. The Royal Parks have vetoed this plan Imagine cycling on London's new and impressive cycle highway with your teenage children. You're cycling along safe, protected tracks all the way through...
