These planters are usually used for cycle parking but here are used to slow/deter cyclists

Through route needed for cycling

Sudden end of cycleway - this obstruction has been here for so long that it's visible on the satellite imagery.

Why? Just why would anyone think that was a suitable parking place for a motorbike?

This queue for the lift at St Pancras took almost 10 minutes to get through.

The Royal College of Physicians has placed this gate blocking access even though both sides are publicly accesible

Locked gate blocking access to cycle parking (luckily there's a way around to the right)

A very restrictive chicane on Great Turnstile

This useful shortcut is sometimes closed at night.

Road Closed to Motor Vehicles during market hours - so why does the gate totally block cycling too? (and cut-through to Doric Way)

Road Closed to Motor Vehicles during market hours - so why does the gate totally block cycling too? (and cut-through to Ossulston St)

Logos on approach to new cycle gap in island.

Shame not to put in stepfree access to the towpath here.

Barrier blocks route from Healey Street to Prince of Wales Road. No dropped kerb on either side.

Gate at end of Hadley Street on Castle Road. Awkward angle for right turn into Hadley Street with loaded bike.

The actual access via the bike track is too narrow. I saw a woman with large bike trailer use the metal anti-trolley track. Is there any other solution?

Route through to superstore from Oval Road. Rather narrow

Oval Road at Gilbeys Yard. Narrow cycle track sometimes obstructed by motors or flooded forcing people to cycle on cobbles.

No through route at the bottom of Highgate Cemetery

No signs where the path north of Coram's Fields is obstructed

There's a gate in here that is always closed on the occasions I've come by here.

Is the market mess a problem? Or is this a necessary feature of shared space?

Very cycle-unfriendly pedestrian and cycle access at University College London.

The awful Seven Stations cycle route has been closed again for roadworks - and where else would the builders put their containers?

Yet again, the awful Seven Stations cycle route has been closed for roadworks.

Montague Place facing west. Shows contraflow cycle lane. Also shows north side of Bedford Square where westbound cycling is not currently permitted.

On Millman Street showing closure of Great James Street - a useful cut through. No cycling now - Dec 09, but a scheme is soon to be consulted on

It's unnecessary for these gates to block cyclists and force them onto the footway.

So that's what it's for! (north side of the British Museum)
