Cycle parking needed here.

Great incentive for cycling to be able to ride to the forest and walk among the trees on a lovely day. Bonus tea and cake before heading home.

A lorry parking on the new cycle path on Lea Bridge Rd.

Car parking on pavement on Lea Bridge Rd, presenting a hazard to pedestrians who may be forced to use the cycle lane to get around it.

Van joins the car obstructing the new cycle path on Lea Bridge Rd

New cycle lane on Lea Bridge obstructed by parked car

Underused cycle parking at front of WhippsX hospital due to lack of stands for locking bikes to. (There is also cycle parking near outpatients which is better for bike locking and that seems well used)

Astonishing number of bikes outside Blackhorse Rd tube. Every stand and railing taken. Mini Holland’s affect. https://t.co/yYXMCosPCV

No cycle parking on this side of Walthamstow Queen's Road station

Bad pothole in Walthamstow

Cycling permitted in Lloyd Park, Walthamstow - dropped kerb needed.

A few more on Leyton High Road. Few and frequent would be good.

Outside Koz Turkish restaurant and shops heading away from the Bakers Arm's junction

Allowing people on street to safely secure their bikes and encourage more cycling in WF

With the new station opening cycle spaces will be needed.

Currently anyone wanting to use this end of Snaresbrook has nowhere to lock bikes unless they use railings traffic lights on snaresbrook road.

We really need a secure bike hangar on Francis Road North side!

On the north end of Francis Road (E10 6NW), there are at least 10 of us who would benefit from a cycle hanger on the street. A covered on-road hanger would suite the area best.

So, is this a cycle lane, or a bin lane? As seen in Forest Road, Walthamstow, London @bollocksinfra http://t.co/ORGJ5RL1eL

It's not everyday you have to duck on a cyclepath - great trip nonetheless - many thanks @SustransLondon http://t.co/tXZ22MCqvL

This is a conservation area but the Leucha Road is council owned (freehold). The Warner houses are all maisonettes on this road and consequently cruelly short of space. An alternative to sheltered bike parking (open with roof) would be to g ... [more]

One of the Lambeth bikehangars would be a good way for local residents to store their bikes securely, and encourage their use.

Cycle parking needed here.

Leytonstone High Road station could do with some secure bike facilities.

This junction going eastbound, and the one preceding it, positions a cycle lane for going straight on directly across a lane for ongoing traffic to turn left. Cars here tend to drive quickly and the left turning lane always seems to have a ... [more]

Walthamstow Registry office needs cycle parking.

walthamstow registry office needs cycle parking

Parking missing for shops and council offices

Council depot has no visitor parking at all

No cycle parking at The Coppermill. Popular destination for weekend riders

Nags Head could do with proper racks

Village is notorious for lack of cycle parking. Recent additions not enough

A stand by the shops on St. Mary's rd would be useful

No cycle parking at front of college

No cycle parking at Arts & Crust cafe

No cycle parking at this parade of shops

no cycle parking outside the school. Difficult to take bikes into school, especially for visitors

The two visitor points at Hollow pond have no cycle parking

There is no cycle parking at the cemetery

The odd one is missing at this parade of shops

By The Drum, should be on Lea Bridge rd. not in the side street hwere they would be prone to theft

Near shops on Lea bridge rd

Cycle parking at the community centre is difficult to access and tucked away, therfore attractive for thieves. Should be moved to front of building

along the shop son Markhouse rd

Playground in St. James Park. Would help prevent people dropping their bikes around the place

All along St. James St no cycle parking for shoppers. some bollards could be replaced with racks or cycle hoops

Parade of shops need cycle parking

Quite a few needed around the Rose & Crown

Need cycle parking outside Chingford Station. The only parking at the moment is on Platform 1, lockers full of rubbish.

Need more stands in the High Street, all the way along. Generally need more cycle parking outside local shopping centres in WF (Wood Street is now better catered for).

Outside The Bell pub (and the Tesco Express). There is only one stand outside the Bell at the mo. Far too little.

A couple outside the Second Nature organic shop - more cyclists shop here than elsewhere!

Several more scattered outside the Wood Street Indoor Market area

Outside a children's play centre

The houses on this street have tiny front yards and inaccessible back gardens. Quite a lot of the residents cycle instead of owning a car. Secure on-street cycle parking in a few car parking spaces would encourage many residents to cycle ... [more]

This location is two ways for cyclists but one way for motorists. Lots of motorists don't look or stop when pulling out of junction as they're not looking for or expecting bikes.

This road has just been improved however it is lethal. The cycle lane is inconsistent. It does not exist in places. And the cars and drivers in this area need to be educated to make way for cyclists especially those with children as they ar ... [more]

The chance to put in a decent cycle path has been missed. Poorly designed entry and exits at road junctions make this impossible to use and pavement clutter of poles and bollards make it unsafe. At the end having to cut across 3 lanes of tr ... [more]

Narrow bridge that makes cycling danderious in peak trafic

cycle lanes are not properly layout, dangerous drivers too close to cyclists and blind spot.

Leyton: recent Olympic upgrades are superficial and should be supporte by making Leryton into a proper town centre again; remove the gyratory and severely calm traffic so it becomes a walking and cycling destination. The nearby M11 link roa ... [more]

Bell Corner: A terrible layout with far too many traffic lanes and insufficient space for walking; plenty of shops and access to the William Morris Gallery further west; This location is directly on the Black Path route, an ancient trading ... [more]

Walthamstow interchange: a major transport hub with many flaws. Too many general vehicle lanes on Hoe St., high speeds, poor connectivity to E-W cycle routes. Should be developoed in conjunction with Walthamstow central

Bakers Arms: The potential for a great hub for people; simply taking the slip lanes away would be a great improvement, but the buzzing shop and residnetial environment would have great opportunities to be come a great local hub

Markhouse: Plenty of shops, and old cinema now used as Bingo hall, a clock tower; good location for a brillant place for people

Lea Bridge Road has toxic combination of motor vehicle parking and heavy traffic, and in consequence is avoided by all but hardened cyclists, despite it being a key desire line for commuter cyclists. Measures required include relocating par ... [more]

Selbourne Road makes for an unsafe link between two good quiet routes. There is enough space to fit a separate route in.

The Lea Bridge Road is the major arterial route for cyclists from the west essex/redbridge area to central london. It is also used by buses, trucks and cars. It feels very dangerous and I have been knocked down there, breaking 2 bones in th ... [more]

Walthamstow town centre The junction of Hoe St and the High St should become a bustling town centre. The NW site is free for developemnt and Hoe St is due a makeover. Make the area much better for walking and cycling and severely reduce sp ... [more]

The Olympic Park work along the Ruckholt rd / eastway seem to have made cycling inractuture worse than they used to be. The existing seperated cycle lane has been removed. A new footbride is being installed over the railway line at the west ... [more]

The pedestrian/cycle lights here are very confusing. The second set turn green a good few seconds before the first set. Very often traffic coming from Leytonstone that is turning right do so when the lights are often green for cyclists and ... [more]

Traffic on the High Street is northbound only but there are cycle lanes for north and southbound cycles. Vehicles often park across both cycle lanes and pedestrians walk out into the cycle lane without looking, unaware the cycle lane is the ... [more]

Cars permanently parked on cycle lane - main bus route to Leyton and bus garage - buses can't get through either.

Grove Road should be a quiet side street, perfect for cycling... except it is used by rat runners to avoid traffic on Lea Bridge Rd. I have seen a number of very near misses with motor vehicles and cycles. It should be closed off at one end ... [more]

An absolutely nightmare of a road to cycle along, including some particularly clueless and outdated cycle lanes that appear and disappear as you head along the pavement. Would be perfect for an overhaul.

Lea Bridge Road has an narrow obstacle-ridden cycle path painted on the pavement of this fast and busy main road. A lot of cyclists commute along this route. Better cycling facilities along this road would be highly beneficial.

There are cycle paths here, but they are not easy to use. Cars park all along the cycle paths making it impossible to use them. I often end up cycling on the path to avoid traffic. Can we fine people who park in cycle paths? Or off road cyc ... [more]

currently has a v. Dangerous contra flow cycle lane down the one way system.

Better direct access to central London from here would be better, the dog leg route through Springfield is a bit of a nightmare and the Lea Bridge road is quite dangerous.

Selborne Road is a key E-W connection, between the quite routes East and West. Selborne Road is very busy with buses. It is scary to cycle here amongst them. The road is wide enough for a segregated cycle lane. The junctions with the bus ... [more]

about 5 or 6 stands just to the right (west) of Eton Manor AC club house "The Cottage" at the Marsh Lane entrance to Jubilee Park, E10 7LB

At least 3 stands, on opposite side of road to Hornbeam Centre

This is the cycle parking provision for the Sainsbury store that offers 250(!) car parking spaces. Two racks too close to each other and too close to the wall, allowing for a maximum of three bikes and preventing secure locking.

This is cycle parking provided as an alternative to the two meagre racks outside Sainsbury. Clearly it is still not enough, the racks are too close to the wall making secure locking difficult and the location is 'out of sight', so not very ... [more]

This is where years ago Waltham Forest council has removed cycle parking during High Street refurbishing works. Numerous complaints by Waltham Forest Cycling Campaign have fallen on deaf ears, so a tree will have to do.

Outside Cafe Horizon. Convenient car parking, no cycle parking. I feel the cafe wouldn't mind customers arriving on bikes.

1 stand

St. James's Health Centre: zero cycle parking. It's a 'health' centre! Words fail me

My residential street provides over 60 car parking spaces and 0 cycle parking spaces. Front gardens don't count as the bikes are not covered by insurance there.

Parade of shops; replace guard railing with cycle racks; widen pavement to accommodate

Row of shops including cafe; support from shopkeepers for cycle parking; what are we waiting for

Row of shops (including a bike shop of all places): no parking whatsoever.

Needs minimum of 2 stands

Needs minimum of 2 stands

NHS center has nothing (except some wheel benders).
