Ever wondered what the whole of the CS2 and CS3 Cycle Superhighways are like to ride? Have a fly-through from the comfort of your armchair thanks to this video showing one rider’s vier of the route.
The user, sw19cam, wrote: “Enjoy this full Parliament to Stratford cycling video (c. 7.5miles)!
It shows many of the excellent sections of the new Cycle Superhighway (and also some of the not so excellent sections).
“For the most part I use the infrastructure on offer, but occasionally use the road where it's safe and empty.”
The user points out that there are “plenty of things to watch out for during the ride”, and invites other viewers to add their own observations.
Having said that, the user notes: “I've almost forgotten the old days of not having this amazing facility - to the point that I've already starting complaining about things like light sequences. Sure, they are annoying - but the paradigm shift is AMAZING!”
Can you spot any more areas for improvement, or do you ride the route yourself? Let us know in the comments below.
After an unpromising start, having to be bribed by her parents to learn to ride without stabilisers, Sarah became rather keener on cycling in her university years, and was eventually persuaded to upgrade to proper road cycling by the prospect of a shiny red Italian bike, which she promptly destroyed by trapping a pair of knickers in the rear derailleur. Sarah writes about about cycling every weekend on road.cc.
