Oh look, new signs from @ChelmsCouncil to show how unwelcoming they are if you cycle to the city centre. One to add to my new blog. https://t.co/lqLuSaHTgJ

Start of long climb to Tourtour

Tunnels on this route are long , curved and dark! Lights required

Tunnels on this route are long, curved and very dark! Good lights required

Chester Avenue, Slateford, Edinburgh. Where we built an out of town shopping centre in the middle of a residential area. Sunday, 1pm. https://t.co/XspjiI2zjF

This photo, looking south toward the bridge, gives an idea of how much space is being taken away from the carriageway and given to cyclists. The bridge is currently only open on weekends - on weekdays you must use a free bus service to cro ... [more]

New shared crossing facility on the north side of the Silver Jubilee Bridge. When the road is opened, this will allow pedestrians and cyclists to cross the road and continue on toward Ditton Road in safety. The path on the right takes you ... [more]

Not all loading is essential*. Clerkenwell Rd needs kerb-protected bike tracks. Paint doesn’t work. *(London officially has the tastiest tap water in the world). https://t.co/xChTttRZEA

Cyclists must give way to rejoin the road they were on before they joined this cycleway.

Nothing here to warn drivers of the cycleway merging onto the road just beyond that big sign.

Cycle parking and car storage area, next to wide cycleway.

New shared use cycleway on Fulbourn Road. Width measured here: 4.0m

Semi segregated cycleway on Fulbourn Road. Width: 1.9m, or 2m if the kerbs are included.

Cycle route signs (and tram), Bratislava

There are few enough cycle stands in Bratislava, but this is not one ('dream' - at a university building).

Public footpath at side of Bolsover branch line, recently cleared, included ramped surface down from old railway line.. Footpath leads down onto Seymour Link Road.

Recently cleared old public footpath providing access from Bolsover branch line to Seymour Link Road

Informal crossing of Fulbourn Road from the shared-use cycleway to the Peterhouse Technology Park.

A dead-end footway. Presumably this was intended as a connection with Cherry Hinton Recreation ground at the time this housing estate was built - but for some reason the link was never opened.

Conceptual cross-section for Chesterton Road with protected cycleway, separate footway, and an avenue of trees in planted grass verges.

Official sign suggesting bikes should be attached to these railings adjacent to the car storage area. Workable, but pretty shabby offering here by Cambridge City Council. Sign lectures: WARNING Please do not fix bikes this side w ... [more]

Nice looking cycleway here - but follow it and it gives up near the junction ahead. Also that sign on the left has the transport modes the wrong way round (but at least it is off the path).

Cycle route signage towards Fulbourn.

Typical abandoned bike - several broken aspects to it such as missing handlebar grips partially detached rack and poor brakes, but still basically functional.

Estimating the width of this shared use cycleway using the iPhone measure app. Width shown is 2.83m but add about 76cm for the manhole cover. Width of shared use cycleway: 3.5m

Midsummer common cycleway

Event signage that is tolerant of the rider. But at the other end of the common there's the usual dismount sign.

St John Ambulance paramedics at the start of the Town and Gown run

Victoria Avenue

Dropped kerb for diagonal route onto Midsummer Common.

Nicely angled exit from the road to Midsummer Common, avoiding the need to slow down and take the usual right-angle bends.

  • Icon 105897 1 or 2 secure cycle hangars (assuming they hold parking for 6 bikes each) is recommended here.
  • Icon 105893 Despite many cyclists who are resident here, there is not even a bike rack in this part of the Avenue (i.e. in front of Brondesbury Hall, 11 The Avenue). I have been in touch with the Brent Council and they mentioned a waiting list to request a bike hangar from cyclehoop but it is not clear if this will ever happen, and how. Thank you for your help.

  • Icon 105747 There is currently no cycle parking within a reasonable distance of the Museum Of London Docklands entrance and the museum actively prohibits locking bikes to street furniture.
  • Icon 105744 Cycle parking needed here.
  • Icon 105743 Cycle parking present here.
  • Icon 105605 Need cycle parking here for residents and visitors. There are so many car parks but none for bikes!
  • Icon 105321 Covered to keep dry
  • Icon 105312 1 stand at the junction of Park lane and Wembley Hill Road and Wembley Park drive located around the area where the Virgin Fibre Optic cabinets are housed.
  • Icon 105311 2 or more Stands along Park Lane on the King Edward side of the road. A huge high rise block on the old Chesterfield House site is being constructed with limited parking. Surely a need for safe cycle parking and storage on the site itself and for other residents is/will be needed. the suggested side of the road has sufficient space for both pedestrians and stands.
