Can you spot the bicycle?

Maude Road E17, yesterday in the rain. It’s the awesome London Cycle Network again, with a bike logo painted on the road surface and a little blue sign saying it leads on to the even greater glory of the National Cycle Network (enjoy). This route has also in the past received an ecstatic thumbs-up from Sustrans.

Waltham Forest council fails to maintain its cycling infrastructure in all kinds of ways. The slippy, slimy leaves in November will in due course be replaced by snow and ice, and when it comes nothing will be done to clear the dedicated cycle crossing at the end of this road. That’s assuming it’s not already been rendered unusable by contractors!
