Cycling to the Olympics made difficult for people in Leytonstone
I have now had confirmation from the ODA. People cycling to the Olympics from Leytonstone or Wanstead cannot turn into the northern cycle parking area from Ruckholt road. I was told you can detour via the (stepped) Marsh Lane bridge or Lea Bridge road. If you do go on Ruckholt road, you will have the pleasure of cycling its entire length (a 6 lane motor way) and then do a right turn at Hommerton road (either filtering right on that motor way or using staggered pedestrian crossings). You can then follow a detour to access cycle parking from the north.
Apparently this is the result of really cycle friendly games.
