    I overtook a cyclist on the way to Stratford going down Hollybush Hill through Snaresbrook/Wanstead. Not too much of an issue normally but when the lanes have been narrowed to allow dedicated cycle lanes to be allocated on both sides of the road it helps if the cyclist is actually in the lane and not still on the road.

    I counted 3 cyclists that morning in the road and not the cycle lane. I thought maybe the cycle lane was full of drains grates or holes so they were avoiding it. There weren't at all so had no idea why they weren't in it. Was causing constant flow of traffic issues for vehicles who don't overtake when they can or quickly/concisely.

    Good to see cycle lanes being put to good use!
