Cycle parking needed here.

Look at fragmented map on my photo! Ed: thanks for letting us know about the problem, this has happened since the iOS13 update, until it is fixed switch to the Apple Vector map style.

Lots of stolen bikes in this area by professional thieves with angle grinders.

Walking to school is not always easy or safe when delivery vehicles park on the pavement near the school. #walktoSchool https://t.co/2YHUpMGiul

Hi - This is a development without enough secure bike storage, many residents say they would use bikes as a preferred method of transport if they could store them securely.

Humongous pothole at the #Kingston gate entrance of Richmond Park @richmondparkuk https://t.co/zTQIUGBsvt

Why park over a cycle lane, isn't there a delivery bay near Hampton Court Bridge? @BidfoodUK https://t.co/cV1G4Ejtdb

This is not officially shared-use, but should be.

and all the other car parks

An ideal location! Adjacent to a station, on a public highway, in an unused motorcycle parking space, and benefitting from existing shelter from the bridge. And it means that a lot of people won't have to go on to the busy London Road to ... [more]

This is a dead end (pedestrian access) so would be a good place to put bike stands, close to the river, high street, station and thames path.

Outside Homebase.

Cycle lane tapers to nothing as it passes a pinch point

Locking to trees as not enough cycle parking for May 2014 Foodies Festival, but not enough in general too.

cycle stands needed near Pen Ponds

Cycle parking needed here.

Cycle stand provision is most inadequate at the main entrance of the Isabella Plantation

Narrow cycle track on Twickenham Bridge

Not enough parking for cycles in Richmond. Saw 8 cycles today propped up against railaings, lamp posts & shop windows. PLEASE let's have more space for bike parking. There could be slots in the pedestrian area behind W'rose or next to the b ... [more]

This is the institutionally anti cycling sign that greets you as you enter Richmond Park. Why not same for driving? http://t.co/1LE9u1FU23

3 -5 stands outside/ next to the parade of shops opposite Ham Library in Ashburnham Road. There is plenty of room here. The stands round the corner in Ham Street are not convenient for these shops. Bikes currently get parked against the gla ... [more]

Large numbers of flats, but lack of cycle parking doesn't encourage car users to use bicycles leaving high density street parking, and discouraging use of cycling to work

Hard to see what this sign refers to.

There are several footpaths to Barnes station from the west - none has been improved and signposted for cycling.

Unhelpful signs and cage at the entry to Richmondpark - cyclists are allowed on roads and designated paths, but are made to feel unwelcome.

Oversized No Cycling sign referring to the footway and no indication that cyclists can use the dead-end bit of road.

Token provision - a dropped kerb would be a good start

The sign shows cyclists on the left, the marking on the footway seems to show cyclists on the right...

The road was recently resurfaced and the road markings for cars repainted - but not the ones telling cyclists they could move to the track to the right.

There needs to be a clearer indication (a sign on the metal pole would be fine) that cyclists can continue on the roadside track from Richmond Park.

Between Teddington Lock and Richmond the riverside path is unsurfaced - this could be a useful commuting route to Richmond if it was surfaced.

visiting Richmond station this week i saw bikes clamped all over the street railings - confirming the complete? absence of bike parking at a major transport intersection. Could not believe it! Tell me I missed it. Paul Fox

'No Cycling' it screams, then in small print 'outside designated routes' - but as there are plenty of cycle tracks in Richmond Park as well as the road, it only means 'No Offtrack Cycling'.

Outside St Andrew's Church, Ham 5 - 10 racks

Great cycle route ends in a pavement, no dropped kerb and blocked by parking bays. Mind you the sign suggesting "Danger No Entry Firearms in use" is a bit more distracting.

Annoying chicane on shared use path

Annoying chicanes - why do they need to be so severe?

Central Twickenham - Church Street leading in to King Street and Heath Road. A complete jumble of roads with heavy traffic, bus stops and islands. No cycle path at all. Cross Deep going south has a very inadequate cycle path but if you want ... [more]

Turning right on to Upper Richmond Road from Sheen Lane doesn't get a green arrow, which results in bikers getting stranded in the middle of the A305 when the light changes.

Trying to cross the A308 from Taggs Island, by car, bicycle or on foot is extremely dangerous. The traffic just doesn't slow down to let you across. You literally have to take your life in your hands.

The cycle lane on Cross Deep running from the junction with King Street up to Radnor Gardens on the side of the road nearest to the river is a particularly dangerous spot for cyclists. The part nearest to King St has car parking which does ... [more]

Cycle tracks along side the A316 are not connected here.

Lack of connection between existing cycle tracks E_W along the Chertsey Road at this roundabout.

Bell Lane should have 'two-way traffic' signs. It is a two-way street but drivers often imagine it is one-way northbound and are hostile to cyclists riding in the other direction. (It was a one-way street between about 1970 & 1995).

The Embankment should have 'two-way traffic' signs installed. Because Wharf Lane and Water Lane are one-way, drivers often wrongly believe The Embankment is also a one-way street westbound and are hostile to cyclists riding in the other dir ... [more]

This footbridge has a low level of pedestrian traffic and could easily be converted to shared use, linking the area south of it to the Uxbridge Rd supermarket.

The roadside cycle path here is often obstructed by illegally parked coaches belonging to the neighbouring coach firm.

The footpath here linking Oldfield Rd & Staines Rd is very little used by pedestrians for most of the day and could easily be made a shared use path (possibly with a cycle ban for the short periods when it is often busy just before and afte ... [more]

A very wide road - ideal place for a dutch-style cycle lane

Great cycle path across Kingston bridge ends in nothing - inadequate cycle racks if you are stopping here, no cycle paths at all to continue into Kingston. Only a fast dual carriage way disappearing under John Lewis.

The shared footpath across the Thames on the A316 is a vital route, especially given the dangerous alternative across Richmond Bridge. However the marked cycle path fails to meet the London Cycling Standard, often shrinking to 100 cm wide. ... [more]

Exit from the Richmond Athletic Association (London Scottish Rugby) crosses the shared-use footpath and gives direct to the A316. Visibility is appalling, both for exiting cars and for passing cyclists. This exit should be closed and moved ... [more]

Cycles have to go on the side-walk, which is very busy. This is a very dangerous situation.

Narrow lanes and lots of dangerous driving - they get excited by the straight road!

very wide pavements for very few pedestrians.

No cycling provision but space found for parked vehicles

The on-road cycle lane is illegal in size, there is lots of room here available to make a legal sized cycle lane - where there's a will there's a way.

CHALKERS CORNER. (Mortlake/North Sheen). Not a roundabout, but a particularly tricky junction for bicycles - unless you get off and walk over a set of pedestrian crossings with your bike. At present this is the best way of negotiating this ... [more]

RICHMOND CIRCUS. Almost impossible to use on a bike if you're coming from North Sheen (along the Lower Mortlake Road), and wish to then go round the roundabout to turn left onto Kew Road. Likewise if you're coming from Richmond Town Centre ... [more]

Parts of this road do have a cycle lane, but amazingly it goes AROUND the parked cars, which is dangerous a) as cyclists are pushed further out into traffic and b) drivers opening car doors or pulling out can be lethal. This policy a ... [more]

No cycling infrastructure but two vehicle lane space is found

Multiple traffic islands, poor road surface and subsequently aggressive drivers. could do better here

Multiple traffic islands, poor road surface and subsequently aggressive drivers. could do better here

No cycling provision but space found for parked vehicles

Hammersmith bridge very dangerous for cycles. Cars overtake and come dangerously close to cycles

No cycling infrastructure

Illegal sized cycle lanes

The terrace is a narrow busy area and cyclists are not left sufficient space to safely travel. Parking along this stretch could be removed to aleviate the issue and a clear path for cyclists on either side.

There needs to be an independent cycle bridge over the railway each side of the existing bridge here as motorists are ignoring the 'do not overtake' markings

Parked motor vehicles, illegally sized cycle lane - never repaired or rarely so make cycling here dangerous.

No cycling infrastructure in both ways despite it being a well used/popular route for many riders

Poor quality road surface along this popular country lane, more could be done here

No cycling facilites on this popular/well used route through Putney

No cycling facilites on this popular/well used route through Putney

No cycling provision along this key/popular route between bushy park and richmond park but plenty of space to park motor vehicles - narrow pavements too for pedestrians. Traffic islands don't help either.

No cycling provision here but plenty of space for parked motor vehicles.

No contraflow cycle facility, instead cyclists of all ages are forced to use a one way system for motor vehicles - there is space here but richmond council chose to give it to parked vehicles instead.

No cycling provision on this road or markings.

No cycling provision on this road or markings.

This road is difficult for cars to come out of without going into the cycle lane because of poor visibility.

There is a zebra crossing here that people routinely drive through without stopping, even when I am standing ready to cross with my two children.

No proper road margins, and so drivers speed through roundabout without stopping or even looking.

There should be no cars in Richmond park or it should be a one way system. If it's a one way system for cars, there is sufficient space to create proper cycle lanes.

There is a cycle lane marked on the pavement on the upstream side of the bridge, with cyle crossing lights available from the Thames cycle path (past Hampton Court Palace) however once you've crossed the bridge into Molesey there is no drop ... [more]

The road here on this part of Sandycombe Rd is down to one lane for traffic moving in both directions. This is due to car parking spaces limiting space on an already thin but busy road. It leads to buses, cars and cyclists having to use one ... [more]

Travelling from Hampton Hill and turning right into the A312 (Uxbridge Road) , it is very difficult when cycling to pull into the right-hand lane due to the volume and speed of traffic behind. A cyclist's filter lane would help riders make ... [more]

No cycling provision here at all, yet room is found for people to park there cars, therefore discouraging cycling when the opposite should happen - welcome to cycling in the LB of Richmond - you are not wanted.

Whitton and the areas around Twickenham Stadium are good routes to avid the busy Chertsey Road but there are few good cycle lanes around here. The Borough of Hounslow areas are particularly poor and unsafe for cyclists.

Richmond Park is a haven for cyclists! There is a dedicated cycling path all around the park, and faster cyclists compete with cars on the road, often overtaking cars and exceeding the 20 mile speed limit or cycling 2 or 3 abreast slowing d ... [more]

narrow road with parking outside the college making it even narower

Richmond Park should be turned into a haven for cyclists! The current access is not bad but you're still a second-class citizen beholden to the cars. Why not ban cars altogeter (apart from disabled access etc.) and make the ring road into a ... [more]

The on-road cycle lane is illegal in size, there is lots of room here available to make a legal sized cycle lane - where there's a will there's a way.

On the south side of Mortlake Green cycle route 4 follows a road which is used as access and lorry parking for a timber yard and builders merchant. Every morning a forklift truck unloads the delivery lorries, completely blocking the road a ... [more]

Junction of Ship La and Lower Richmond Rd. Cycles cross using shared pedestrian crossing onto footpath. The view down Ship La is restricted by a high wall. The cycle path should continue across the junction to allow cyclists to turn safe ... [more]

Chalkers Corner junction between the south circ and the A316 is a nightmare for cycling. The A316 cycleway comes to an abrupt stop leaving you stranded on the pavement and having to deal with 6 lanes of cars or ride across the pedestrian on ... [more]
