The Great Kneighton Cyclebahn between Long Road and Trumpington. The morning rush in Cambridge, see also #49023.

Broken fence (one of several examples) on Long Road. That could be nasty in the dark.

Poor pavement cycleways, by Dutch standards.

Start of new segregated cycle track on Hills Road, Cambridge - one side only, so presumably southbound cyclists will be on the footway to the left, ie effectively riding on the right.

Now completed, I think, the cycle track and floating bus stops northbound along Hills Road. Work on the southbound track begins in January 2016.

Path lighting in a way which doesn't dazzle users. Perhaps this should be used for the guided bus path.

Very well used cycle parking in the middle of a cold November weekday.

Foliage well trimmed back, but it is January!

Junction of Rustat Road and Carter Bridge showing bollards, road markings and 'give way' sign.

Close-up showing raising of the pedestrian half.

Ready made route for the Chisholm Trail on the eastern side of the railway track by the station. Picture taken from Carter Bridge looking south towards Clifton Road. This could potentially be the space for a second entrance and ticket hall ... [more]

It is not easy to walk up this side of Cavendish Road without skimming the wing mirrors and hedges.

Cycleway over Ditton Meadows in Cambridge. Cyclists riding towards the river Cam.

Chisholm Trail bridge option 2

The Cam-side cycle path snapped by a camera suspended from a kite. The path is narrow and shared with all manner of riverside users - it can get congested on sunny days in the summer. Careful use of the bell keeps the shared route usable mo ... [more]

The bridge has separate crossings for cyclists and pedestrians. Whether peds will not choose to walk on the 'cycle' side remains to be seen.

Grand Arcade cycle park

Supposedly these new stands allow higher density cycle parking than the Sheffield stands that were here before.

Closed again. Evidently over the weekend a motor vehicle has crashed into the rising bollard here and shed oil over the road. I was forced to use the unsatisfactory cycle bypass for the first time!

New arrangement at Pizza Hut now open

This fair's example shows that if stalls are set back from the path there is no reason to stop Parker's Piece remaining open to cycling during such events.

Happy tricycling in Cambridge

Although this is one of the busiest cycle routes in Cambridge, cyclists can go to hell as far as the temporary traffic lights at this junction are concerned. Temporary lights control access from both directions on Tenison Road, St Barnab ... [more]
