The cycle route away from Battersea Power Station emerges from underground. There's a small cycle sign to the right but look out for traffic from the left.

The cycle route towards Battersea Power Station leads straight into an underground vortex. There's a small cycle sign to the right but no obvious way to get there.

The Thames Path - I don't think there'll ever be a through route here by the river, let alone a cycle route.

Santander Cycles station at Nine Elms, plus pop-up lanes.

I think this is a bus lane, then a pop-up cycle lane, then a general traffic lane - it's really not clear enough.

End of pop-up cycle lane on Nine Elms Lane, and a sign which I think is telling cyclists and truck-drivers to look out for each other.

Hullo new cycle way. Battersea Park Road https://t.co/NTBIZ3fdVm Location currently estimated will correct later.

Slightly pointless bit of cycleway, as it goes behind the bus stop then returns the rider to the road

A huge array of Santander Bikes (into the distance) just north west of Clapham Junction.

Enough for 100 bikes if possible. Currently use buses to travel to the station and cycling would be so much easier - I'm sure many would agree

Cat's Back Bridge has been replaced by a modern structure - it's very busy with pedestrians and cyclists, but there are still barriers in place making passage awkward for everyone.

I got a bit confused here as I wasn't expecting to have to go on to a shared bus lane.

After being on shared use this route towards Putney moves on a lane shared with buses here.
