A car speed bump - but now cyclists must watch out too
A London housing association has installed a series of speed bumps on a pedestrian road - to stop cyclists in their tracks.
Homes for Islington installed a cluster of bumps in a quiet Canonbury backstreet which is often used by bikes to avoid heavy traffic.
One resident described the bumps as "ridiculous" while a cyclist said it was "not practical or aesthetic".
The housing association said if the bumps do not work it will remove them.
A spokesman for Homes for Islington said: "The estate tenants and the residents' association wanted the ramps following issues with speeding cyclists on this narrow path which is shared by pedestrians and cyclists.
"If in hindsight it does not work we will review it with them."
