Whitehorse Lane Updated

Well nothing has changed, despite the publicity given to the original photograph nearly five years ago.

This route isn't just any old crap cycle lane, it is in fact route 23 on the London Cycle Network.

Whitehorse Lane (LCN route 23)

Old one this, it may have been modified since I took this photograph in July 2002, but I doubt it.

As featured in the Croydon Advertiser and Warrington Cycle Campaign Cycle Facility of the Month, September 2002.

This innovative shared-use footway/cycle-lane/parking-space has only been made possible by the latest developments in full-suspension mountain bikes. Cycle training courses in Croydon now include a module on riding over parked cars, thus avoiding the hazard of being hit by an opening door.
