Blackfriars bike parking - early signs of progress

Baynard House bicycle parking is on its way.

Those 75 bike stands will be going in just down the car park entry ramp, directly in front of you as you cycle into the car park. Original article here.

The scene this morning wasn't exactly humming with activity but at least these signs have gone up and a small area has been roped off.

Six bays = 75 bike parking spaces.

Perhaps if we applied the same logic of providing proper cycle infrastructure on our over-crowded streets, they might become less choked with idling motor vehicles. At a ratio of 6:75, that's quite some space-saving.
