Bad and wrong

Cycling on the pavement is bad and wrong. Just stop it.

It’s this kind of cycling that gives us who obey the law a bad name. If you’re tempted to… just don’t!

Segregation on Queen Victoria St

Segregated Cycling on Queen Victoria St

This short section of road on Queen Victoria St is a regular highlight of my occasional commute between Victoria and Liverpool St. (Except of course for the time that white van parked across the entrance. No camera with me that time).

As you enter the ring of steel, part of the constriction of the traffic flow has enabled 300 metres of segregated running. It’s great, no fear of trucks, buses or ‘dooring’. I’m not sure why they bothered with the double yellow lines though.

Now if we could have segregated lanes down the Embankment, that truly would be a cycle superhighway…
