152170Photo #152170Now that’s how you design a quick build cycle lane and bus stop!!

Admittedly, it does help if you’ve spent half a century aggressively widening roads in the name of car dominance.

142293Photo #142293Coming up from the cycle highway along the Thames, this road is really dangerous. The bike lane is shared with buses, but quite often the buses are blocking it as they sit waiting. There's often cars who use it as a second lane as well, even though they aren't supposed to. So cyclists have to weave between the buses and cars/trucks (very dangerous) or go up on to the sidewalk (dangerous for pedestrians) in order get from Embankment to Trafalgar Square. There should be a dedicated bike line that goes around the bus lane. It's also really dangerous to get around trafalgar square as a cyclist. I get cut off 9/10 times even if I'm clearly visible and hand-signaling.Cycleway:

As there is no Cycle Superhighway in this part of the city, a basic cycle lane here from St Johns Wood Road to Marylebone Road is desperately needed. With the increase in people avoiding the tube, this can be a simple way for many people to avoid the Jubilee Line.Cycleway:

132874Photo #132874The stretch of Exeter Road parallel to the tube track (i.e. from the junction with Kilburn High Street to NW23UG) is not over populated with cars and in the 9 months I have lived there there has always been empty car parking spaces at all times of day.

Furthermore, there are a comparably large number of flats along this road, compared to the other residential streets around Mapesbury which benefit from large houses with gardens where bikes can be stored.

As such, this stretch of Exeter Road is a great candidate for bike storage, given that people in the flats do not have access to any bike storage currently, and many people are looking at investing in bikes for transport as a result of the pandemic and a move to a healthier lifestyle.
