3 or 4 spaces would be useful here at the shops. There's currently nothing.

Hi there We are in a block with 20 flats. No storage for bikes.we all have bikes as we are far from station .i guess you would need two stands per flat . Dieter berends 107 millard road,SE83GB Kind regards

Quite a nice bit of path in Ladywell Fields, Catford.

London Cycle Network route 21 at Laban Dance, Deptford

No reason for this to be blocked by steps.

Strange world we live in, in which we close off a road, put in fancy surfacing, and then have to put up a sign warning people of an uneven surface.

Cut-through to Rolt Street, really - no provision for wheelchairs, buggies or cyclists

Minimal cycleway signage passing under the new branch of the East London line to Clapham Junction.

This sign makes no sense

Pedestrian/cycle path through a new development, Lewisham

New cycle parking at a new development

The trip hazard that I've been trying to get removed for the past 2+ years has now been removed. Yay. Location: Blythe Hill, London (England, United Kingdom)

Yay there is now a sign for the Ravensbourne Green Way.

Sign mentioning the National Cycle Route 22, which is a bit misleading since the national route 22 is about 8 miles to the west and there is no more signage towards it after this sign. Location: Bellingham, London (England, United Kingdo ... [more]

This is a trip hazard for cyclists and pedestrians, the bar and pole need to be removed to make it safe.

London Cycle Route sign using the wrong coloured background. The National Cycle Route 22 doesn't go anywhere near Lewisham. The route number should have a blue background for local routes rather than red which is for national routes.

London cycle route sign

one way except cyclists with cycle path behind parked cars

Cycle only or emergency vehicles if you have the key for the gate
