Farringdon / New Bridge Street

Farringdon Street into New Bridge Street (before the Blackfriars Bridge) has dreadful road conditions, particularly southbound on the approach to the Fleet Street junction. Watch out for a nearly invisible bike lane, 2 slip roads and a junction that are almost blind for the traffic pulling out, and for major cracks and potholes near the edge of the road.

I’ve found it’s best to cycle in the centre of the left-hand lane until you cross Fleet Street. That way you avoid saddle-imposed damage, punctures and traffic collisions.
