131029Photo #131029Very dangerous junction for cyclists as they rejoin the road from the cycle path on the pavement just before they approach the busy junction with Carnwath Rd. Many cars turning left into Carnwath Rd that do not give way to cyclists going straight on, cutting them up. A road sign to remind cars to give way to cyclists as the rejoin the road and to give way to cyclists going straight over the junction.Cycleway:

39865Photo #39865Traffic feeds into this roundabout from four directions, then splinters off into two directions without clearly designated lanes to guide vehicles. Cyclists are vulnerable to cars, buses and lorries entering from all sides, and we're often forced into a lane heading in the wrong direction. Cyclists traveling northeast from Hammersmith must either brave the hazards of this roundabout or take a lengthy detour to avoid it.Dutch-style cycleway:

128054Photo #128054This is the direct route between West Kensington and Earl’s Court but no safe cycle route. Sharing heavy, fast-moving traffic on a 3 lane urban ‘motorway’ or illegally cycling on the footpath are the two direct options. Alternative routes over the railway lines are long detours north to Hammersmith Road / High St Ken or south to Lillie are/Brompton Rd, neither of which are safe.Cycleway:

29821Photo #29821There's nowhere to park a bicycle if you want to pop in to the local Barclay's branch. I've cycled around looking for something appropriate and the best I've found was a sign post at the bus stop. Not very convenient for the passangers and not too safe to leave the bike either. One or two stands right in front of the bank would be ideal. ThanksCycle parking:

Supposedly, a cycle path is going to be built through the new Imperial College site that is being built, but this will most likely be years from now.

41537Photo #41537The road narrows here from two lanes width (not marked) to one. Cars try to overtake bikes on a left hand corner.

Either the roads and the Green are blocked with traffic making it difficult and dangerous for cyclists or the traffic is moving far too quickly and often over the speed limit on the Goldhawk Rd making it equally dangerous.

As major road that connects Harlesden to Westfield, major office blocks and the general Shepherd’s Bush area, it would be great to see major improvements of the bike lane. In parts the bike lane is decent, in others it disappears and makes it very dangerous to cycle especially as it’s access for HGV’s to the industrial site along Scrubs Lane. I understand the majority of this section is in Hammersmith and Fulham but the route could start in Harlesden and give great access to work and shopping for many in Brent.Cycleway:

40342Photo #40342Riding through Shepherds Bush and Hammersmith *could* be great, but right now it involves taking your life into your hands--especially on Uxbridge Road, the Westfield roundabout etc. I'd love to see a REAL divided-from-traffic bike path right down from, say, Acton, to south of the river (Barnes Wildlife Centre perhaps), linking up with paths running parallel to the Thames. If it existed I'd be riding my bike today! Currently there is some really useless bike provision i.e. 'bike lanes' with cars parked in them, bits of divided bike path that lead nowhere between SB and Hammersmith, parks with signs saying bikes not allowed...Dutch-style cycleway:
