'Cycleway' parallel to the A3

Highway engineers can't resist the temptation to place a massive pillar on the track of a cycleway.

'Cycleway' parallel to the A3

'Cycleway' parallel to the A3

This is the 'cycleway' parallel to the A3, squeezing past this bridge ramp next to some sharp edged barrier supports. This is yet another bridge which is virtually impossible to take wheeled items over - not just bikes, but wheelchairs, ... [more]

Pavement cycleway alongside the A3

Pavement cycleway next to the A3

Subway under the A3. I think the ambiguous No Cycling sign refers to the subway here, not the 'cycleway' that runs parallel to the A3 on the left.

A subway under the A3, where there is, of course, no cycling.

This is the parallel 'cycleway' to the A3. On sports days this bit of grass becomes a car park.

The cycle route parallel to the A3 suddenly reduces to a pavement.

Variable - short bits of this route parallel to the A3 can be OK if you don't mind the traffic noise.

They couldn't have made that bridge much more awkward to try and take a bike over. Imagine trying to do it with a trailer! Of course some extreme mountain biker's would see it simply as a challenge (I guess).

See #28041.

Horrible pedestrian / cycle bridge over the A3. Theres a new at grade toucan and pegasus crossing nearby that'll mean this bridge will probably be hardly used.

Toucan crossing of the A3 into Wimbledon Common

No motor vehicles sign on this crossing. Horses to the left bikes and people on the right.

Cycle lane on Kingston Hill

These are private roads and were very quiet when we rode through on a Sunday afternoon.

Rather grim signs - prohibiting play.

Useful cycle route under the tunnel

Useful cycle route

The third chicane on this useful route via the railway tunnel.

Beware a bit of broken glass in this tunnel when we went through.

Struggling through a chicane

Useful route

Looks like the path off to the left is no cycling for some reason.

The presence of these chicanes probably indicates that this is a useful route for local cyclists.

The access to this route which leads under the railway is unmarked and quite hard to find.

Willow Road, Tolworth

Willow Road

A footpath in Kingston Road park.

One-way for cars, two-way for cycles.

Good practice - parking on both sides of the crossing.

There are bike racks here but more would be useful. Note the bikes on the right locked to the yellow railings.

More needed by Rose Theatre/ Wagamamas. How come they can build a 900 seat theatre and not provide any bike parking nearby?

Josta 2-Tier cycle parking underneath the footbridge at Surbiton station. This parking is now enclosed in a secure compound which requires a swipe card to access - details are at http://www.southwesttrains.co.uk/new%20secure%20cycle%20comp ... [more]

Low headroom subway (2.0m)

Some cycle parking near the entrance to Sainsbury's would be helpful - at the moment people lock their bikes to the trolley parking bays, and the staff take their bikes inside the building. This triangular toast rack bike parking has now be ... [more]

Marked as a cycle route, but there's no dropped kerb!

Some nice new covered cycle racks at Norbiton's station.

There are some nice covered cycle parking stands along here, shame its flagging up as a Cycle Theft hotspot. The text is a little hard to read but suggests going to www.soldsecure.com for a list of bike locks and www.immobilise.com for b ... [more]

Integration - cycle parking, phone box, recycling (hidden) and bus stop

An old fashioned looking Cycle Shop

Folding bike and Cycle Route into Kingston

Cycle parking crammed into a distant spare corner.

Sign reads: "All bikes locked to these railings will be destroyed." There are some racks behind the photographer.

Double-deck cycle parking at Surbiton station

No entry except cycles AND Pedestrian priority! We need both of these in Cambridge!

A view of congestion from the multi-storey car park above Sainsbury's in Surbiton.

Double-decker cycle parking at Surbiton Railway station.

Outside New Malden railway station - good quality and well used sheffield racks.

Rubbish quality toastrack cycle-parking that seems to have easily fallen victim to vandals.

Cycle parking outside Kingston upon Thames station - nice to have it, but it's so close to the wall that only one side is useable. If they were at a slight angle it would help.

There's an increasing amount of cycle parking in Kingston (where the student population is booming) - also across the road to the rear.

Shared use signage in Kingston upon Thames - so many possible wordings, so why did Cambridge agonize so much about this issue?

New cycle lane and parking, Kingston.

'No entry except cycles - pedestrian priority' - signage we're not allowed in Cambridge?
