  • Segregated cycle path on approach to North Circular

    Created by Oliver Bruckauf // 1 thread

    The A105 southbound has segregated cycle lanes and then a bus lane until the bus lane ends just short of the North Circular. The bus lane ending creates a vicious pinch point for cyclists with a metal barrier on the left and cars pushing into the lane from the right to avoid the queue of vehicles turning right into the North Circular.

    As the pavement on the left is very wide, there is enough space to paint a short stretch of bicycle lane onto the pavement, starting where the bus lane ends (so as to not interfere with the bus stop) and ending at Regents Avenue where the road is wide enough and one can continue into the bicycle box at the North Circular junction.

  • Road bike? Beware dropped kerbs not low enough!

    Created by Paul D.Smith // 1 thread

    On the northbound side of this road, the dropped kerbs at junctions are not dropped enough. On my road bike I hit the rims even at low speed so I'm forced to not use the cycle path on this stretch.  Reported to Enfield Council 2019/02/10.

  • Chalk Lane Cockfosters - cyclist contraflow needed

    Created by JonC // 1 thread

    An 80 metre length of Chalk Lane is one-way northbound, preventing use by southbound cyclists wanting to avoid the busy A111 between Hadley Woods bridleway and Cockfosters Station, where there is a safe Pelican crossing onto the cycle track linking to Oakwood and beyond.

    An 80 metre long contraflow for cyclists would fix the missing link and provide a safe and mostly off road cycle route all the way from Enfield to High Barnet.

    London Cycle Design Standards state: "Unless there are over-riding reasons not to, there should be a presumption that contraflow cycling should be provided for in any one-way street." (4.3.9 Two-way cycling in one-way streets).

    Chalk Lane used to be two-way until a new housing estate was built in Verwood Drive, when it was made one-way to stop too many cars emerging onto the A111 next to the tube and bus station. However, there is no reason to stop cyclists.

  • ECC - 9 Contraflow signs needed on Devonshire Rd N13

    Hamish F // 0 threads

    There are no contraflow signs when entering Devonshire Rd from Adermans Hill. Cyclists have reported hostility towards them as they ride "against the flow". The markings are correct as the cyclist enters Devonshire Rd from A105 but of course the drivers do not see that.
