Magical cycling infrastructure

My photo shows the cycling cut-through on First Avenue E17 with the London Cycle Network TURN LEFT FOR LEYTON sign, which is just before the dedicated NO LEFT TURN cycle lights. A particularly impressive piece of infrastructure, this.

It’s extra magical in the snow, since the council has a policy of not gritting cycling infrastructure. This is only sensible as it would be a pity to waste money on a fringe activity that only a tiny minority engage in.

And right now everywhere in the London Borough of Waltham Forest is sheer magic. The Town Square is looking even lovelier than usual.
