"I’d assume that there isn’t the budget to put speed bumps in every road in the area, rolling along at 20mph isn’t really that difficult nor I suspect much worse on fuel, my old Volvo chugs along fine though Richmond Park at 20mph…"
"No law changed, but some shared routes are remarkably well hidden, one that connects Dukes head passage to the Pool traffic light isn’t terribly obvious.
I can’t imagine it’s very high on police priorities really, clearly it can…"
"Your estimate unless your following Froome/Wiggins etc is a tad off, most even keen cyclist will not pass 20mph unless they are working very hard, or being helped by gravity.
In one of the curiosity’s of law bikes being not motor…"
"I’m not sure I’m that worried about the woodlands gardens, it in many ways make sense so people know before entering the first gate.

"Does seem over kill for what, outside of sunny weekends/flowershow etc is a quiet path.
It has been a quiet back route for cyclist for so long that there is a shared path from the traffic lights to the dukes Head which one assumes is for access to…"
"I use Priory Lane, which uses a triage system rather than the normal attempt to get though at 8:30am, which most surgery's use. In fairness most if not all surgery's will see you on the day, if it's urgent. due to my health I'm…"
"To be honest it was faster, going in to kingston and back at 8.30am than normal I was back just after 9am, it was a bit sticky on Saturday.
Looks a fair bit worse coming the other way. but certainly half term reduction seems to be making it work,…"
