Hideous steps and stepped ramps. Masterpieces of inaccessibility :-/ To really rub it in that no cycling sign is lit - but not the rest of the bridge! https://twitter.com/simon_nuttall/status/1101065625076727809

Cycle parking needed here.

No cycle stand around the square and the community could really benefit from it

Roads in central Kingston were closed on Saturday for Christmas shopping, with no allowance made for cyclists.

There's not a lot of point having dropped kerbs and route markings on the road if drivers can just park across them.

It's unfortunate that the sign might lead some cyclists to cut across in front of the roundabout.

Car hiding the marking for London route 75

Unsigned approach to the tunnel beneath the railway.

Main road with narrow cycle lanes and obstructive delivery vehicles.

If this asphalted path were opened up for cycling it would link with The Cut to New Malden station.

The Cut - why does the sign to the station show this as a pedestrian route only?

I think a lot of the cycle route signs in this area have been pushed around.

Contradictory signage - is it a No Entry or a dead end? In fact it's a through route for cyclists (northbound).

Double-deck storage space for cars at Kingston Hospital, but very little provision for cycling.

Artifical and unnecessary barrier.

Cycle parking needed here.

This would benefit the residents of a very small block of flats on a residential road, all of which I'm sure would contribute to it's construction as many do not drive. Please consider this serious request. Cycle racks on the road would als ... [more]

Cycle parking needed here.

On the very wide footway at the junction of Wood Street and Down Hall Road. This would be convenient for visitors going to the busy Bentall Centre. There is no cycle parking visible from this location.

Quite astonishing lack of any specific cycle parking in the 2 km from London Rd to Elm Rd despite many small parades of shops and several big-box stores; very many bollards and some guard rails.

A rather pathetic atempt at a cycle by-pass to a pinch point. 30cm narrow lumpy cycleway goes up and over a grassy build out.

Bike parking is needed at the eastern end of Old London Road near to Jaxx caffe and Teh Fighting Cocks pub. There is no where to safely park your bike in this part of town. Bike parking would support additional trade. Why not put stands in ... [more]

Kingston University fitness centre appears to not have any bike parking. People leave their bikes on top of a low wall chained to railings. There is car parking here. Would make sense to reallocate some of the car parking space to covered ... [more]

St Mark's Church, St Mark's Hill Surbiton. There is nowhere suitable for secure bike parking here. Parking should be provided. Thank you. It should have been a requirement of planning permission when renovations were carried out. Thank yo ... [more]

New student accommodation has been built on this site with appalling bike parking provision in Water Lane. Please provide some bike parking at the front of the premises where there is surveillance and it's convenient for users, not around t ... [more]

Kingston Bridge foot by TK Maxx. This is a very popular location for bike parking. On some days all the available space is used. Additional parking in this area would be helpful. Thank you.

The Bentall Centre is a huge shopping centre containing 75 shops. It has associated 1,900 car parking spaces and NO convenient bicycle parking on the premises. How can that be in 2016?

Cycle parking needed here.

Half-width cycle lanes in the dooring-zone lead into pavement build outs.

bike stand needed as nowhere to park bikes on street

Hi many small blocks of flats, nowhere to park your bike:)

Heading towards Tolworth the segregated cycle track ends at the car sales place. Cyclists have the legal options of dismounting and walking or to cycle on the road.

Outside Kinston Crown Court

Three stands needed on corner of Clifton Road opposite Norbiton and Dragon pub, Kingston. Would be helpful given the number of bikes parked here.

A feeble design bicycle 'tast-rack' parking facility outside the surgery. It doesn't properly support the bike and there's not enough distance between it and the planter. And it's made from galvanised steel not stainless steel. Other than ... [more]

Fairfield West looking south. Local NIMBYs claim that this is a 'perfectly good' cycle lane and that a path across the middle of the Fairfield is not needed. Because parking is allowed on the west side of the road and the remaining road spa ... [more]

View of Fairfield Path looking north from Fairfield South. Some people have objected to the creation of a wider footway and a segregated cycle path. You can see how much width is actually used now. The path is not wide enough as it is.

Fairfield path looking south from Fairfield Road end. Some people have objected to the council creating a segregated 2m for cycles/ 2.5m for pedestrians or shared use path. You can see that the existing path is not wide enough for the exist ... [more]

No signs at all where the Thames Cycle Route turns left off the road here.[fixed by 2016]

This quiet dead-end is planned to become a through route to a construction site and then to a new housing development on the closed Latchmere House Remand Centre. [now it's 2016 and some other access seems to have been found]

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?

There are 2-3 bikes locked to street furniture in Uxbridge Road. Hence I believe there is demand for a couple of Sheffield stands near Maple Road/Claremont Road Junction.

A rack here would be useful, enabling safe parking for access into the back of John Lewis

More cycle racks are needed here. There are so few that bikes have been tied to the railings, recently I noticed a sign asking owners not to do this but if there were enough racks I'm sure this wouldn't happen

No bike racks in this area causing bikes to be tied to the railings outside Primark and on the opposite side of the road

Most of the existing bike racks here need repair, just outside Eden Walk shopping centre, most have broken away from the wall, I think there are only about 3 or 4 left still functioning

There is a need for many more bike racks around this area, the existing ones are always full!

There are quite a lot of racks on the opposite side of the road, although nearly always full, but none here outside the main entrance to John Lewis, consequently many bikes just get tied to the railings. NB the many racks alongside All Sai ... [more]

The main cycle parking at sainsburys used to be very conveniently sited but since they have shut the door close to it, it is less used and less convenient. They have put a small rack by the other (main) entrance but it is really poorly des ... [more]

The Olympic cycle races passed through this tunnel - but its a very intimidating environment combining heavy fast traffic and noise intensified by claustrophobia. Signed cycle routes navigate around it.

barriers prevent access by tricycles and kiddy trailers - as used by the kind of people that really appreciate quiet off road routes. Motorcycles can still squeeze through anyway so they don't work!

There is an abandoned tramway that runs from New Malden sation to Raynes Park Recreation Ground. This could be turned nto a cycle/walking route that would dramatically shorted the route between these 2 places and not involve crossing the ... [more]

No on-road cycling facilities means you are force to use a shared path which pedestrians resent sharing.

Dukes Avenue. This is the main route from Ham to the local shopping centre on Richmond Road. It is narrow and a bus route and not well lit. There is room for a cycle track which would take cyclists off the road and encourage the use of cycl ... [more]

I would love to see the whole of the A240 Go Dutch. There is a small section where cyclists have their own lane, however, one really does risk their life (any time day or night) cycling from Epsom and the Ewell by-pass through to Surbiton, ... [more]

Numerous parked cars on the road blocking a whole lane on this marked cycle route - plenty if not all houses have driveways but go unused it seems.

National Cycle Route 4 is constantly blocked by illegally parked cars.

Illegal sized on road cycle lane despite the space available to do more

No cycling lane down this road, despite the space available.

Wide road but no cycling infrastracture

No cycle lane, lots of parked cars make cycling down here at busy times near impossible

Illegal sized cycle lane, in poor condition too.

Can we improve the cycle route between Kingston and Surbiton please? In particular the right hand turn from Surbiton Road into Surbiton Crescent is incredibly dangerous with buses and lorries often masking cyclists using this route

Kingston-upon-Thames already has a good start with some dedicated cycle lanes but some bits just don't join up, also lots are not clearly marked and some crossings are positively dangerous. Additionally cycle theft is the highest crime in t ... [more]

A243 Hook Road. It's a dual carriageway which is inhospitable to cyclists. TfL should provide a cycle track to link up with the ones they've provided further south by Chessington World of Adventures and teh daft short length of shared use b ... [more]

This is an important North South link for cyclists and the only option is to join the multi-lane one-way system. Neighbourhood committee voted against (only by one vote) a shared path on Queen Elizabeth Road

Cycle lanes up Brighton Road and Upper Brighton road would be good. Mini roundabout at Langley Road junction is difficult for cyclists due to speed of traffic and 5 different 'arms'

Getting around this part of Kingston is a nightmare. Going north up to Norbiton is awful. Loads of reasons to improve the routes up to Richmond Park

Kingston is a busy cycle mad town and efforts by the council or mayor should recognise this and encourage more to take up cycling or walking. Cycle safety must be of paramount importance to the local authorities but little seems to be d ... [more]

Timing of the crossing here for pedestrians/cyclists and horse riders is unfairly weighted in favour of "smoothing the traffic flow" Would make sense to allow people to cross all in one go - quicker for everyone (except drivers of course!)

Hammersmith Gyratory - designed for motor vehicles and treated by vehicle drivers as a race track. As a commuting cyclist (one of many) there is no easy route to/from hammersmith Bridge/Kensington where you can stay on your bike i.e. not ha ... [more]

An intersection that has led to many bicycle collisions with cars, including one involving my brother. difficult for cyclists to remain on Sopwith Way as there is no bicycle lane at all, despite being a 3-lane road into the town centre. Thi ... [more]

The town centre is favoured by many cyclists althougth the traffic system does not allow easy access across town.
