Hackney Cyclist
Living and cycling in Hackney since 2003, I want Hackney to be as safe and comfortable for me and my daughter to cycle here as it is in the Netherlands

Yes, also great to see families making use of the 'fabulous for cycling' bus lanes on the A10 in Hackney

Funnily enough in the exact same place as this child was also captured cycling by google two years earlier

Cycling on an under construction and unopened cycle street in Zwolle, before the final surface of red asphalt is added

Protected cycle tracks are needed so teenagers can cycle three abreast to school, safely separated from lorries and trams alongside

Erm.. the bit where you say "we are doing this". Temporary suspension or ban, use whatever terminology you like, I still think it is a backwards move

The consultation does say "in partnership with Hackney Council" so I assumed you had a say in the routing. The Tower Hamlets section looks great, I hope Hackney Council rejects the route in Hackney and pushes for protected cycle tracks on Lauriston Road instead

Your very first tweet to me seemed to imply that a ban on dockless bikes in the borough was the case

CS1 is packed with cars, as is Q2 on Chatham Place, the same will be true on Frampton & Sandringham, etc. Even if there is some reduction in capacity for cars these schemes are just not good enough to enable safe cycling for all

I could say the exact same thing to you!

Yes this really looks like a massive reduction in car parking, whilst pushing cycleways down indirect back roads so as not to inconvenient people driving or parking, whilst ignoring the terrible conditions on Lauriston Road, where people have actually died whilst cycling

Except you're not reducing capacity for cars, as the awful cycleway proposals for Hackney will show. It's clear you're not a fan of uber, which is understandable, but I think the banning of dockless bikes due to your personal opinion of "US billionaires" is a loss for residents

Except for all the car parking spaces on the carriageway, which vastly outnumber bike parking, including on proposed "cycleways", which will often be filled with parked uber cars

Thanks for the response Jon. I'm sure there is a solution that enables dockless bike hire & unobstructed pavements to co-exist but I think the banning of dockless bikes, whilst there are many other obstacles causing issues for pedestrians in Hackney, is a backwards move.

there is very little shared use paving in the Netherlands that I have encountered
