Why not make your own cycle route?

Simply ask your council to paint a bicycle sign on the road surface and, hey presto! You have now got an official cycle route at almost no cost to society at all.

Please do not spoil things by asking ‘If this is a recommended cycle route, why aren’t there any cyclists using it?’ or ‘If all the houses have off-road car parking, why is road space allocated for stationary lumps of metal?’

The Chingford ‘quiet route’.
