There was plenty of cycle-friendly infrastructure to see even in my limited time around London. So here are a few extra pics of some of the more interesting sights (click to enlarge them):
It was a bit of a mix of on-road and off-road cycleways – sometimes both
Another handy shortcut through for cycling at the end of this cul de sac
A short section of two-way separated cycleway
A clever two-way cycle crossing into Hyde Park but cars can only exit
Enjoying a traffic-free Mall on the weekend
Simple contra-flow cycling allowed on this otherwise one-way street
A slightly more formal way to achieve contra-flow cycling
Shape of the future? A stylish bike and a car-club (shared) motor vehicle
A shared space for everyone to enjoy – cars are guests
Clever bike parking
Next stop: Bristol!
Could some of these also be used in Christchurch?

What’s the orange box by the bike stand? Not a bike pump by any chance?
Not the orange box but, yes, that’s a bike pump hanging out the end of the car shape – here’s the manufacturer’s webpage for it: http://www.cyclehoop.com/product/bike-racks-and-cycle-stands/car-bike-port/
There’s one of these “car” bike racks near Auckland Airport – not sure if it includes a bike pump though.
