The Olympic Legacy

This month sees the Olympic Games come to London so we take this opportunity to showcase how the multi-million pound budget will leave a lasting legacy, promoting sustainable transport in East London.

A carefully crafted cycle lane, all of five bike lengths long, is thoughtfully and unusually positioned on a roundabout. Cars are helpfully warned that they aren't to park here, and pedestrians prohibited from walking on it, but it is not clear how one should board and leave this excellent facility- perhaps a sprightly BMX style bunny hop over the elegant fence?
