Clapton Cycling Conditions
Cycling today through Clapton, the A107 was gridlocked from Stamford Hill to Lea Bridge Road. The map below indicates the length of the queues, for those unfamiliar with the road. Roadworks on Lea-bridge road appear to be the problem - actually the problem is too many people driving.
Hardly superb cycling conditions either. Bus lanes were blocked, the only way to progress was overtaking and pulling in for oncoming traffic.
It isn't hard to understand why non-cyclists have a view that cycling on the roads is dangerous, if this is what they experience.
