In Praise of Waltham Forest Council

No really...

In a departure from my normal sarcasm, I actually want to commend Waltham Forest council on something.

I have notice that they have put in more cycle stands outside the Selborne Walk BhS and some more down by the side entrance near ASDA. This has more than doubled the available bicycle parking racks, and is a welcome addition as the existing racks near the playground gets pretty busy on a nice weekend.

I frequently use the stands near Sainsburys / Willow Walk, and these can fill up pretty quickly as well. So if there is any money left over then adding some more around here would be useful. As would some down Hoe Street, where cycle stand provision isn't great at the moment.

  1. not really about waltham forest - more about stratford, and cycle access to the olympics. i was hoping (as an E17 resident, and cyclist) you might want to comment on this post on leon daniels' (head of surface transport at tfl) blog....

    amazingly, he considers the stratford gyratory a safe cycle route to the olympics...
