Where no bikes were before

 

Brent, March 2009. Sphagnum

Signs like this have just appeared on the path all around the park behind the sports centre. Why invite bikes where few are ever seen, other than small children's ones? Some jobsworth looked at a trike and thought, "Let's order some signage." Do they have to mark everything in sight? This was a lovely tree lined park where you would search hard to find any sign at all, and now it has these industrial blue and white intrusions at intervals on the path all around.
