In my end is my beginning

Down memory lane... Ten months ago the very first post on this blog, complained about the permanent obstruction of this cycle stand on Bromley Road, by a car wash firm which had padlocked this sign to it.

The sign was subsequently removed and that seemed to be the end of the problem. But now after a long absence the sign is back, every day. Which is what happens when the council's environmental inspectorate just talks nicely to local businesses instead of prosecuting them. This photo was taken on Saturday, along with all the other obstructed cycle stands shown below.

There are five cycle stands in this photograph (below). Just put an 'X' where you think they might be and send to Councillor Bob Belam, Cabinet Member for Environment. The lucky winner will receive a copy of the Council's draft climate change strategy consultation paper! (Mission Grove, E17, yet again.)

(Below): Lea Bridge Road, across from the junction with Peterborough Road:

(Below) See if you can spot the Sheffield stand outside number 450 High Road Leyton. I've blogged about this twice before and this crap Council has done precisely nothing.

On Warren Road E10 (below) a cyclist has managed to squeeze in, despite that road contractor's sign. Well done!
