Cycle access: cycling not advised

This is what ‘permeability’ is all about, is it not? A clearly marked out cycle lane which leads to a gap that isn’t wide enough to accommodate handlebars (let alone one of those cargo bikes that funny foreigners use). Buxton Road E17.

Yikes! Not just foreigners. Waltham Forest says: don’t bother cycling out here ‘ndru’.

(I am sorry to say ‘ndru’ has fallen for all that nonsense about the Netherlands being better for cycling than Britain.)
