This sign definitely should not have been there. It disappeared on the same day. I encountered the similar sign next day further down the road and complained to TFL. The sign was removed on the same day. Thanks

Re: Cyclist dismount?

Although the picture doesn't show it there has been a 'Cyclist Dismount' sign here. My understanding is that if you ride up the cycle lane and then get to the new footpath cyclists should dismount if they wish to continue on the footpath. I think that this is the 'thought' behind the sign in the vi...

Uber Licence plates - Can you get them?

Hello ppl, I was wondering if there is a way to identify Uber cars? What I notice is that many aggressive and dangerous drivers are private hire drivers or Ubers (example here : https://bit.ly/2MsWBv9) but there is no way to confirm this. I tried to contact Uber but no replies. Would anyone know if ...

Re: Cyclist dismount?

This expalins a lot. https://www.cyclinguk.org/cycle/cyclists-dismount Where the carriageway is closed but the footway remains open, a ‘Cyclists dismount and use footway' white-on-red temporary sign can be used. Contractors are therefore required by the rules to keep the road open for cyclists if a...

I agree and I have seen it mostly under Merton council . Maybe time to request contractors to update their signage.

Cyclist dismount?

What do you make of this Video? This was taken at CS7 near Colliers wood station. I have seen similar signs in past around CS7. Have I broken the law or is Merton Council in the wrong?

If you think this is wrong please let @Merton_Council (tweet) know!

Re: Is it legal to cycle whilst using phone?

Telephoning while cycling is obviously dangerous to others , the rider is not in full control of the machine I hope my singing is so bad it shocks them into dropping the phone which smashes on the ground Needs to be nipped in the bud, one sees plenty of teenagers on the phone, doubtless they do not...

Re: ... Of some good shorts?

Castalli nanoflex is quite good as well.. I have been using it for few years and found it very comfortable and durable. It seems to be bit expensive but worth every penny just on durability and comfort.

Although it is wrong if ca...

Re: Car as weapon

Piddle poor driving for sure, and likely offences their in their own right, but no attempt was made to use that vehicle as a weapon within the legal meaning of the term. Some poor cycle roadcraft was well, but nothing unlawful or that justifies a driver getting so het up, no worse than I see daily....

Re: Car as weapon

It not as easy as it sounds.. Cyclist was lucky not to be physically attacked as other cyclists and pedestrians intervened. This is gangland London and never know what weapons people are carrying..
