Disgruntled cyclist, South West London

You freewheel along, admiring the blossom and the ducks on the ponds until –hang on – you’re at the railway bridge when you need to have turned right. Only problem is you can’t turn right, or you can if you are prepared to get off your bike and walk it down various paths with ‘no cycling’ written on them. So much for former Mayor Ken Livingstone’s assertion that his proposed £500m investment in cycling in London will mean that ‘thousands more Londoners can cycle in confidence on routes that take them quickly and safely where they want to go.’
