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Cat's Back Bridge has been replaced by a modern structure - it's very busy with pedestrians and cyclists, but there are still barriers in place making passage awkward for everyone.

A cycleway and a bridleway subway.

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.

Fishponds Road

Fishponds Road - its a bit of an uphill this way. The cycle route sign (for meaning see #73568) here seems to be meaningless. This road feels like a bit of a 'rat run' for motor vehicles - I suppose the speedbumps confirm that.
