St Helier Avenue, Merton
Just in case anyone thinks I only blog negative things about cycling in Merton, there are occasional highlights. Like Morden Hall Park. Or St Helier Avenue (above, taken on the east side looking north).
Compare this with Green Lane - another wide road with plenty of space, and they've got it right this time. Car parking is out of the way, on the road, and there's a segregated path. There's not many pedestrians getting in your way and good visibility. It's not perfect, of course; the bus stop at the south end is not well-sited, and at the side roads the priority is against you. But those are minor gripes - you could almost be in Holland.
