It'll be helpful to have a couple of stands near Putney Heath Greenman, where cyclists can park their bike there and then walk to the heath or Putney station. This location is also where the sperate cycle lane on the pavement starts/ends.Cycle parking:

42412Photo #42412The new road 'calming' scheme just allows the cars to go smoothly along as fast as they like, being slowed only by the bodies of those cyclists brave enough to take the middle of the lane through the many new pinch points. Most of the motorists seem to prefer passing cyclists exactly there, nudging them into the gutter, for some reason ... seems to be a challenge for them. Pleaat the very least we need 'cycle priority' signs, or roundels on the carriageway.Dutch-style cycleway:
Problem
dutchcycleways
42411Photo #42411St John's Hill, around Clapham Junction. There's space here for a segregated cycle lane down the middle of the carriageway ... they've got cones there at the moment, due to roadworks, which makes it clear how easy it would be with a bit of political will, to keep the motorised traffic in one lane only, both ways, and free up the central area for cyclists to go two ways up and down this quite steep hill, where you need protection from impatient motorists as you slog along.Dutch-style cycleway:
Problem

42372Photo #42372This part of Battersea Park Road is stacked with small shops and could be really nice for the people who live there if it weren't so busy. I find this part of the road one of the scariest parts of CS8 to ride on, there's just a strip of blue paint along the side of the road which is very thin to begin with, consequently the cars just ignore the cycle lane and drive in it. The road get's very backed up and drivers try and force their way onto the road from the side roads blocking the cycle path. I think this is a very dangerous road to cycle on and I can't see how this can be described as a Cycle Superhighway, living there must be awful.Dutch-style cycleway:
Problem
dutchcycleways
42371Photo #42371Living on the Wandsworth one way system I have seen some very close calls and unfortunately I believe one fatality. The lack of planning is only underlined by the fact that we are now at the end of the new CS8 which means cyclists are dumped into the middle of a car nightmare. Surely Wandsworth has to be next for some Dutch style rethinking?Dutch-style cycleway:

42370Photo #42370Anywhere near Vauxhall. Currently 6-lane motorways everywhere, it takes 10 minutes to cross a road there are so many parts each with pedestrians timed to wait for as long a delay as the lights will allow to be programed, there are no traffic laws, no speed limits, acres of bare concrete linking things together, the few bike lanes having to share space with sidewalks and giving-way even to tiny cul-de-sacs. The Barclays cycle-hire stand here is surrounded by a desert of horridness, the worst that London can offer. Take your new bike over the bridge and wait for 8 lanes of traffic, cars vans taxis and lorries jumping red lights to wait in the cycle spaces, police cars mounting the pavement to avoid them because there's too many vans in the cycle lane and no space to get past. If you needed proof that UK was designed as a car-racing video-game by somebody who would never need to visit their damnable creation, then Vauxhall would be it.Dutch-style cycleway:

42334Photo #42334New 'traffic calming' measures are ludicrous, forcing cyclists (and other traffic) towards the middle of the road which is likely to result in head-on collisions and cyclists being cut up by car/lorry drivers.

42333Photo #42333The most dangerous part of my ride to work. Narrow lanes where cyclists are in danger of being crushed by the many buses.

42250Photo #42250WANDSWORTH ONE-WAY SYSTEM. Bad enough coming from Clapham if you're cycling on towards Putney, but lethal and a no go zone for cyclists coming from Putney and going on towards Clapham. Attempting to cycle along Armoury Way is suicidal - when there are about four lanes of very fast moving vehicles. If you want to turn right at the end of it (if you're going to Brixton or Clapham) then you basically can't do it unless there are no cars about. This is a pretty rare occurance where this system is concerned (perhaps late evening after 10pm...but even then it can be fairly busy). It needs a total rethink and to be designed for cyclists aswell as cars, as I certainly won't attempt to cycle on it if I'm going towards Clapham way...preferring to walk with my bike through the middle of Wandsworth High Street (as this is one way) - this is very inconvenient and can up to 10 minutes to your journey. I think this is a major one way system south of the river as many cars use it when coming from Putney and going towards Clapham, Brixton and beyond. Seriously dangerous for anyone on two wheels.Dutch-style cycleway:

42082Photo #42082The start/end point for Putney Village Cycling Club's weekly session at 12pm on Sundays is at The Telegraph Pub, SW15 3TU. It's named 'Tibbet's Ride', after a local pathway.

The offroad route covers roughly fourteen miles of official cycle paths through Putney Heath, Wimbledon Common, around Richmond Park and back again for a well earned beer.

What to improve? Introduce the same 20 Mph speed limit through the village as is already in place around the perimeter of Putney Heath.
