Slightly bonkers place for a cycle track, but there is at least a buffer zone, and not excessive traffic.

The towpath of the Forth & Clyde Canal at Stockingfield Junction has reopened, with just the bridge remaining closed.

The towpath of the Forth & Clyde Canal at Stockingfield Junction has reopened, with just the bridge remaining closed.

The cobbles under the Ruchill Street bridge have been replaced by asphalt, removing one hazard at this very narrow section of path built in modern times. See #92011 for previous surface.

Not again! A driver parking in the cycle lane on University Avenue, and across part of the junction mouth of Kelvin Way.

Kelvingrove Park being used as a car park by drivers. This is meant to be a car-free zone!

The gully in #51324 is now blocked with mud.

Missing bollards where Garriochmill Road becomes the Kelvin Walkway, with graffiti obscuring the sign. Yet other sections of the Kelvin Walkway have multiple barriers in the name of attempting to prevent access for motorbikes.

A fallen cycle parking stand in Benalder Street. But it appears that it was not the rust that led to its downfall.

Before this can be opened some kind of bollard is probably needed.

The view from Gleniffer Braes Country Park. The path through here is of variable quality, ranging from old asphalt to unmade worn path across the ground, and one section at the bridge over the Gleniffer Burn was too rocky to cycle. There is ... [more]

An astonishingly long-lasting piece of Strathclyde Regional Council artwork remaining at the Clyde Tunnel entrance.

@citycyclists Here's another example, the Ely BP roundabout on the A10 north of Cambridge. This dangerous infrastructure was built recently. We pointed out that crossing two lanes of fast-moving traffic (x2) was dangerous. So did all three ... [more]

GREAT new signage at the bottom of each of the ramps at the curly-wurly bridge in #Ladywell Fields 🚲 It is dangerous for pedestrians and cyclists to ride across this bridge. https://t.co/oeC5jp5iJO

Lots of covered cycle parking, not exclusively two-tier, at Thun station

Two-tier cycle parking at Lindau-Insel station

Start of segregated cycleway on the rail causeway to Lindau

Cycle and pedestrian routes on the rail causeway to Lindau

Cycleway diverted around a new development, Münsignen, Switzerland

Cycle contraflow, Chamonix

The excellent new segregated cycleway west out of Chamonix ends here - there's a new cycle bridge just beyond the road bridge, connecting to the existing cycleway west. No pop-up provision, the real thing!

Wedding in Memmingen - with the bride and groom carried in what seems to be a bike for carrying a wheelchair.

Proper cycle parking needed on this side of Buchloe station.

Salford's first CYCLOPS is complete! https://t.co/5ZZblMkF4r

Good morning @sgloscouncil Please pass on my thanks to your highways team, for the recent works to permanently close my road to through traffic 🚧 Pedestrians, cyclists and even the occasional horse rider are all still welcome ⤵️ ... [more]

[UPDATE: See: #182119.] [Later image: #183400 and links] [Image taken 18.5.22] NCN658, link route between James Street (in direction of camera) and Foss Islands Road, York. [NOTE: No street view at this location.] As promised, Workman LLP ( ... [more]

[UPDATE: An email from CYC on 10.8.22 says: "The path and vegetation to the north is adopted highway, so it is with the Council. I will chase up getting the section from the zebra through to Foss Islands Road cut back. The surface is not in ... [more]

An extremely narrow section of path along the canal below the Ruchill St bridge. Shameful that something so bad could have been built in modern times! See update at #185407.

Large-slotted gully 2/3 across width of widened cycle path at bottom of slope. This could easily catch the wheel of a cyclist not paying attention, and should be moved to the edge of the path. Updated at #185404.

I won't be locking my bike to these rusty old stands next to a big puddle! See update at #185402.

The new Chamonix-Aiguille du Midi train halt - no cycle parking, but that's ok in such a tight space.

There's a pretty poor surface on much of the Trans Pennine Trail (NCN route 62) as it makes its way around the Burn airfield. Note added 3 Aug 2022: The surface has improved, see #185289 and #185285.

[UPDATE 2.8.22. The 'closed' signs have been removed.] [Image taken 31.7.22] Butcher Terrace (left), Terry Ave (ahead), Millennium Bridge (right), York. [NOTE: No street view at this location.] The 'cycle route closed' signs are still in si ... [more]

[UPDATE: 3.8.22 Someone has cut the foliage that covered the front of the sign exactly following the edge. It is legible again though the blind corners of the entry/exit have not been cut back. So perhaps the sign was cleared by an individu ... [more]

Recently resurfaced path. New information boards showing the history of the airfield have also been added.

[Image taken 3.8.22] Monks Cross Retail Park, Monks Cross, Huntington/York. Context: #173310. I went into TK Maxx and up to Homesense (www.homesense.com/stores/York_Monks_Cross). I spoke to ‘Steve’. He said it is customers parking on th ... [more]

  • Icon 185411 Vehicles drive at high speed through Kew Green. Build a pedestrian crossing to make it easier for pedestrians to cross the road. This will also slow traffic down and make it safer for cyclists.
  • Icon 185401 A bike way along Monmouth drive on the grass verge
  • Icon 185400 Improve cycling/wheeling access to the platforms
  • Icon 185398 Needs a walkway from Leysdown Road to Church Road
  • Icon 185397 Rookery Lane is a public byway,that has been allowed to become a sorry state. Multiple pot holes lead to flooding and the byway becoming boggy and inaccessible. This byway provides a traffic free connection between Hayes and Bromley Common. Pot holes should be filled and consider resurfacing in keeping with natural environment. Access could be improved by removing one restrictive bollard.
  • Icon 185396 Better signage for no right turn on to Rowett's Way and better signage for no left turn into Leysdown Road. The junction is dangerous and abused, particularly at night.
  • Icon 185395 Better signage and lighting provision at the left hand filter to Leysdown Road
  • Icon 185394 The road needs traffic calming to prevent speeding drivers to and from the prison cluster.
  • Icon 185393 Sneaky left hook, luckily I read his mind. The indicators are not clear but on replay they are flashing. https://twitter.com/anneramsey740/status/1556771048544141312?s=21&t=WbGSiiF_219Xpi6etlJ_kg
  • Icon 185392 "continuous footway" at Brunswick Street. Drivers not giving way - pedestrians and cyclists at risk. https://twitter.com/116mcd/status/1556726888047038466?s=21&t=WbGSiiF_219Xpi6etlJ_kg
  • Icon 185391 I’m not sure why the multiuse path doesn’t continue to the road junction. The area the path stops is often busy to cross with the amount of traffic.
  • Icon 185390 Absolutely awful junction - very unsafe. Must stop cars turning right as they come up the hill or put in a mini roundabout (the type that buses and lorries can drive over slowly if need be but visible for al)l. Even traffic lights would perhaps help. At the very very least a huge sign telling them to indicate. (update: apparently a clear right of way has recently been created for those coming up the hill which is an improvement. Not seen it yet but if so then hopefully there's a big stop sign for those coming down the hill.)
